Pembroke Pines Domestic Violence Attorney

Domestic Violence Cases in Florida

Domestic violence occurrences happen all too often when couples are in a hostile relationship or on the brink of divorce. Even outside of a tense family situation, domestic violence can occur and result in one person establishing power over another in order to control their actions.

In Florida, domestic violence includes any unwanted physical contact between two parties who are related, or in an intimate relationship, including married and unmarried couples, as well as between a parent and a child.

This is not an exhaustive list of signs and if you feel unsafe in any way, the time to act is now. Get help from a compassionate attorney who can work with you to protect you from any future harm.

Can You File for a Restraining Order?restraining order filed by woman in Florida

Individuals who are experiencing domestic violence can seek protection under the law by seeking a temporary restraining order. They are available to protect individuals from carrying out threats of harm against victims.

If the temporary restraining order (TRO) is granted, a hearing will take place within 14 days to determine if it should be extended or made permanent. If there is not sufficient evidence that abuse occurred, the court may dismiss the petition. Our Pembroke Pines family lawyer has extensive experience representing people who need a temporary restraining order and can help utilize the law to protect you from harm.
