In Florida, an Injunction is a court order that requires or prohibits someone from doing something. There are many different types of Injunctions which, if violated, will result in a criminal charge.
 
Of particular concern is a Domestic Violence Injunction.
 
In Florida, if you have a Domestic Injunction issued against you and you subsequently violate it, you will be facing criminal charge of Violation of an Injunction.
 
If not handled properly, the consequences of having an Injunction granted against you and any subsequent violation of that Injunction can be very detrimental and costly.

Consequences of a Domestic Violence Injunction

Having a Domestic Violence Injunction granted against you will prohibit you from having any contact whatsoever with the other paty unless specifically authorized by the Court. Even if the other party wishes to have contact with you or initiates contact, you are prohibited from doing so.

This prevention of contact is not the only consequence to having an Injunction granted against you. You will also be prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition, may be forced to vacate your house, may be prevented from having contact with your children, and may be ordered by the Court to attend and complete a Batterer's Intervention Program.

Defenses to a Domestic Violence Injunction

The Petitioner is not a victim of Domestic Violence
The Florida Injunction law requires that there must be sufficient evidence that the Petitioner be a victim of Domestic Violence or have reasonable cause to believe they are in imminent danger of becoming a victim of Domestic Violence.

If there is insufficient evidence that the Petitioner is indeed a victim of Domestic Violence, the court will be prohibited from granting the Injunction in Florida.

The Petitioner is not in "imminent danger" of becoming a victim of Domestic Violence
It is not enough that the Petitioner have a general fear of the Respondent. Unless there is sufficient evidence that the Petitioner is in imminent danger, an Injunction should not be granted.
