Daytona Beach Injunction Attorney

What is an injunction?

In the context of family law in Florida, an injunction is essentially a restraining order, issued as a protection against violence. If you are seeking to petition the court for an injunction or if you have had an injunction entered against you, a Daytona Beach family law lawyer can assist you in determining the best course of legal action. If you are in the middle of a divorce case, an attorney can take this into account and advise on how to minimize the damage this may cause in your divorce proceedings.

A court has a great deal of discretion when issuing an injunction. It will minimally prohibit you from going near or communicating with the petitioner, but may also include other orders not limited to the following:

  • Award the petitioner exclusive use of property, even if jointly owned or in your name
  • Award the petitioner temporary custody or child support for minor children
  • Require you to undergo drug, alcohol, or anger management counseling
  • Require you to participate in a 29 week Certified Batterer's Intervention Program
  • Require you to surrender firearms or ammunition
