Restraining Order Florida

Tell Us About Your Case

A restraining order is a mandated civil court order that establishes legal ramifications on an individual if they are caught purposefully trying to get into contact with someone they have previously hurt. A court will not issue a restraining order for the simple reasons that someone does not want to see another person, there has to be a significant reasoning for it such as harm and violence. What most people don’t realize with a restraining order, Florida residents might not know that a restraining order is not right for everyone, and it will not fix all the problems you are having with another individual.

Is There a Requirement for a Restraining Order?

The legal system makes it possible so that not just anyone can get a restraining order on someone else if they feel like it. IN order to file for a restraining order, Florida residents need to be at least eighteen years of age or an emancipated minor, unless a situation arises otherwise. For example, if a person is underage and is having a baby, and they happen to experience domestic violence from their partner or the baby’s other parent, they can still qualify to fire a restraining order.

What is Domestic Violence?

When people think of domestic violence, they often think of a physical altercation between two individuals who are in a relationship, but domestic violence is actually much more than that. For example, many criminal acts such as trespassing, can be taken as domestic violence for getting a restraining order. Florida residents should be aware that physical violence from an assault is not the only qualification that individuals could use in court to justify them wanting a restraining order. Harassment is also another common reason why many individuals feel the need to file for a restraining order on someone else.
