What You Should Know About Injunctions
An injunction is a court order that mandates what actions a person needs to start or stop doing. There are several different types of injunctions for protection in Florida. An injunction can be sought for protection against domestic violence, repeat violence, sexual violence or dating violence.
Dealing with an injunction on your own can leave you with considerable risks, which is why you want to be sure you have the guidance you need from me, the experienced lawyer at the Finkelstein Firm, P.A. My name is Jenna Finkelstein, and at my Clearwater office, I can provide you with the information and guidance you need.
How Courts Handle Injunctions
The court can address many things when issuing an injunction, such as custody of any minor children, temporary support, and visitation. Additionally, if an injunction is granted, then you will be unable to own or possess a firearm. You will want to make sure that you are fully aware of what is being sought and all the consequences associated with an injunction being imposed.
A petition for an injunction is a civil issue and is separate from any related criminal matter. If you have been served with papers indicating that another person is seeking an injunction against you, or you are seeking to file a petition for your own protection, then I am prepared to do what it takes to develop a personalized strategy to defend your best interests throughout every step of your legal needs. You will need to have an experienced attorney on your side for your hearing.
