Orlando Injunction Lawyers

Serving Family Law Clients in Orange, Osceola & Seminole Counties

In Florida, injunctions in family law are orders issued by a family court judge that contain restrictions and conditions that the named person much follow or be subject to penalties. These injunctions are issued to protect individuals in domestic violence cases where the alleged victim has accused the named person/offender of some type of abuse or threat of abuse. These injunctions are known as restraining orders in other states. They are designed to stop family violence and can be issued on an emergency basis when abuse has allegedly occurred or when the victim believes she or he may be in imminent danger.
