Restraining Orders / Injunctions

What is a Restraining Order?

Restraining orders, also known as protective orders and/or injunctions for protection in Florida, are court orders barring someone from having any contact with the person named on the order, or from visiting a certain location. Restraining orders in Florida are easy to obtain, by merely filing a form in court and advising a judge that there is abuse occurring, the restraining order is normally granted to protect from possible harm to the person. A restraining order is normally granted due to threats of physical violence, harassment, stalking or domestic abuse but can be misused by vengeful spouses to prevent a spouse from seeing their children or remaining in the home, or when a divorce is occurring.

Use of a Restraining Order
