Injunctions & Restraining Orders in Florida
Protect Your Rights with a Florida Criminal Defense Attorney
According to Florida law, victims of any kind of violence can file an injunction for protection or file for a restraining order against the aggressor. These orders are to prevent the accused from coming within 500 feet of the defendant or having any contact with the defendant directly or indirectly. Communication through a third party is also not permitted. If this law is breached, the accused could face severe punishment. Even just trying to send a message via a third party is grounds enough for arrest.

Definition of Injunctions & Restraining Orders
Under Florida State Law section 800.03 statutes, "Victims of any kind of violence like repeat violence, sexual violence, or dating violence for protective injunction; dating violence investigations, notice to victims, and reporting; pre-trial release violations can file a restraining order against the aggressor"
Florida Law provides protection for victims of:
- Repeat Violence: This is considered at least two incidents of violence or stalking within 6 months from a non-family member.
- Dating Violence: This protects a victim who had been dating or was in a romantic relationship when they were subjected to some sort of violence, stalking, false imprisonment or more.
- Sexual Violence: This protects any victim of sexual violence in Florida.
Violation of injunctions or restraining orders can have legal consequences. You could be arrested for violating injunctions even if you have been wrongly convicted. You could be permanently restrained from having any connection to the other person.
