Injunctions for Protection and Restraining Orders
Experienced Legal Representation Against Injunctions for Protection and Restraining Orders in Orlando and Throughout Central Florida
Have you been served with an injunction for protection against domestic violence, dating violence, or sexual violence? Are you facing charges for violating the injection? If so, it is crucial that you contact an Orlando injunction defense attorney as soon as possible.
If your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or domestic partner is willing to swear on paper that he or she is in fear of an act of violence from you and that act is imminent, the court can enter a temporary injunction for protection against you without you even knowing that it has happened. Then, once you are served with this order, you can have a restraining order against you based only on the allegations of your partner! You didn't get to tell your side of the story and if you have any guns they will have to be surrendered. You might even have to move out of your own house, pay child support or alimony and you might not be able to have contact with your own children.
You may be tempted to pick up the phone and confront this person as to why he or she has done this to you. Don't do it! Florida Statute 741.31 says that if you contact your partner, then you violate the injunction! You can be arrested and charged with a separate crime – a first degree misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in county jail and a $1,000 fine.
Fortunately, you are entitled to a hearing in front of a judge before this becomes permanent – but you only have one shot, so do not go it alone!
If you are served with an injunction, you need to pick up the phone and call Defense Attorney and former Florida Felony Prosecutor Jack Kaleita immediately. He can examine the allegations against you, protect your rights, and prepare your defense. Call him now!
