Boca Raton Domestic Violence Lawyers Serving Palm Beach and Broward Counties

Domestic Violence Injunctions in Palm Beach County, Florida

If you or someone you know has been the victim of domestic violence, you may feel that you have nowhere to turn. Fortunately, an attorney at The Orner Law Firm can help. After going to a safe place and seeking help from law enforcement if necessary, contacting a Boca Raton domestic violence lawyer at our firm is important. We can assist you in obtaining emergency protection from further contact or abuse by way of a domestic violence injunction.

Often referred to as restraining orders or orders of protection, a domestic violence injunction offers a domestic violence victim legal protection from further harm by prohibiting contact or certain conduct of the person named in the injunction. An injunction may apply to virtually any case of violence or abuse between family members, people who share a residence with one another, spouses, ex-spouses, people in a dating relationship, and more.

Filing a Domestic Violence Injunction

By petitioning for a domestic violence injunction, you may be able to get immediate relief and protection from your abuser. The initial purpose of an injunction of this kind is to provide the victim with emergency protection, and after a court review a more permanent court order may be put in place.

Upon completing a petition for a domestic violence injunction, a judge will review the petition and determine whether the grounds for seeking protection are valid. If it is determined that the petition is valid, the court will enter a temporary domestic violence injunction that will order the alleged abuser to refrain from contacting the victim. At a future court hearing, the judge will determine whether to dismiss the injunction or to grant a permanent injunction.

Contact a Boca Raton domestic violence injunction attorney at The Orner Law Firm today to schedule your initial consultation regarding your case.
