Florida injunctions are enforceable throughout the state of Florida and in any other state. Once you have obtained an injunction, law enforcement and the courts become your allies in protecting yourself from harassment or violence. Additionally, Orders of Protection from other states will be given full faith and credit, and honored by Florida courts. Violating an Injunction for Protection is a criminal infraction that can result in imprisonment and/or fines, and loss of important privileges, including the right to own or carry firearms.
If you believe that someone is violating a protection order, the police should be contacted immediately. If you or a loved one has questions about restraining orders contact us to discuss your legal options. Also, injunctions can be modified to increase protection or allow some limited contact as conditions and relationships change. Finally, if you have been denied an injunction or had one enforced against you, the later conduct of the other party may allow a court to revisit a previous decision.
In Jacksonville, Green Cove, Orange Park, Yulee, and St. Augustine, we have petitioned for and received injunctions for clients, as well as had numerous frivolous and many highly contested injunctions denied against clients who we defended in the injunction process. Our experienced lawyers know the law, the judges, and how the process works. Don't leave your important legal matters to less experienced lawyers who were just in law school a couple of years ago. Mr. Arnold, Ms. Zamora, and Mr. Leombruno have more than 100 state and federal jury trials between them and dozens of injunction hearings. Put that experience to work for you.
