Domestic Violence Injunctions in Florida
Brandon Family Law Attorney
As a domestic violence lawyer in Brandon, Attorney Gill and his legal team are committed to protecting clients from abuse. Domestic violence is a problem in households across the country. Women, children, and even men can be victims. If you are suffering from abuse by a spouse, dating partner, or a household member, we can help you.
Filing a domestic violence injunction is one way to get your abuser to stop contacting you and harassing you. Our legal team at the Law Office of Thomas P. Gill, Jr. can assist with the paperwork and prepare you for hearings in front of a judge.
Restraining orders can be granted in situations that involve:
- False imprisonment
- Verbal threats
- Destruction of property
- Sexual assault
Injunctions can be approved even when there is no physical violence reported. Harassment and verbal threats are all recognized as valid scenarios in which restraining orders are needed.
Will an Injunction Affect My Divorce or Custody Case?
Domestic violence accusations are taken seriously by authorities. If a court believes that you are a danger to your children, your parental rights may be limited. Likewise, if a victim does not take action to protect a child from an abuser, the victim's custody rights could also be at risk. Allegations of domestic violence can also factor into a lot of issues in a divorce, such as alimony, visitation, property distribution, and more.
In some cases, a divorcing spouse may make false accusations to gain leverage in a divorce. We can also represent individuals facing domestic violence accusations and find ways to resolve these accusations.
If you are facing abuse in the household, call our legal team immediately.
