Domestic Violence Injunctions
Domestic Violence involves assaults, real or threatened, between members of a household, sexual partners, or people who have lived together.
The judicial system in Miami-Dade County is one of the national leaders in dealing with domestic violence cases. We represent both victims and alleged perpetrators of domestic violence in civil courts.
We assist victims of domestic violence to present their case to the judge to show that the victim has a reasonable fear of further acts of domestic violence, and that it is in the victim’s best interest to obtain a domestic violence injunction to protect him or herself.
We also can represent respondents in domestic violence actions to protect them from possible false claims made by the petitioner in an effort to manipulate a divorce action or a paternity action, in order to minimize the negative effect of a permanent injunction if it is entered, and to ensure that the respondent still has meaningful contact with the parties’ children.
An injunction is generally defined as a court order which requires a person to do something, or which prohibits a person from doing something. In the context of domestic relations, an injunction is often used to prohibit contact between individuals. These orders have serious implications as they can be permanent in nature.
Whether you are a victim of domestic violence, or have been falsely accused of domestic violence, we can assist you.
