Injunctions/Restraining Orders

An injunction is a court order directing a specific party to refrain from certain behavior. There are many different kinds of injunctions, both civil and criminal. Civil injunctions typically prohibit corporations from engaging in certain objectionable behavior, such as violating the terms of a valid non-compete agreement. Criminal injunctions typically prohibit a defendant from having any contact with another person.

A "no contact provision" is a very common quasi injunction in criminal law. In cases where there is an alleged victim, such as a battery case, the judge will usually order a "no contact provision" during first appearance when setting bond and other conditions of release. A "no contact provision" will typically prohibit any and all contact with the alleged victim, their residence, and their place of business. "No contact provisions" include direct and indirect contact, meaning that the person against whom it is issued is prohibited from personal contact and third-party contact. Having a friend or family member contact an alleged victim instead of doing it yourself is still a violation of the "no contact provision," and if the court finds a willful violation, bond may be revoked.

Temporary Injunctions can be obtained very quickly to keep one person away from another. A hearing before a Circuit Court Judge must take place to make a temporary injunction permanent. Whether you are in fear for your safety and need the protection of an injunction or restraining order, or you feel like a court order is being unfairly and maliciously used against you, we can help. We have experience working both sides of injunctions and restraining orders, and we can leverage our experience to your advantage.

One example of an injunction is an injunction for protection against stalking. The Florida Statute governing this area can be viewed here. The Statute outlines what a stalking injunction is, and includes a sample petition for filing for one.

Injunctions and restraining orders are somewhat complex, and the attorneys at The Parnell Law Firm have the experience to use this area of law to your advantage.
