Injunctions in St. Augustine, FL
St. Augustine Restraining Order Attorney
Injunctions for protection, more commonly referred to as restraining orders,
are court orders that restrict a person's behavior. The most common
types of injunctions are for domestic violence, repeat violence, and dating
violence. Each type requires different facts to be valid, and unfortunately,
injunctions are often used as leverage during family law matters such
The impact of having an injunction placed against you can be devastating.
An injunction can prevent you from returning to your home and family,
maintaining or obtaining certain employment, and volunteering at your
kids' school or activities. Having an injunction against you also
leaves you vulnerable to arrest if the protected person claims you violated
the terms and conditions of the injunction.
If an injunction has been filed against you, you do not have a right to
a government-appointed attorney to defend you. Accusers, on the other
hand, do receive free representation in most cases. As such, it is extremely
ill-advised for you to try to defend yourself at an injunction hearing
against an attorney representing the other side. Secure the assistance
of a skilled St. Augustine attorney with the experience and ability necessary
to effectively defend you.
