Permanent Restraining Order Lawyers in Florida

Florida Attorneys

Serving You and The State of Florida

If you have been a victim of domestic violence, you are probably worried about your safety on a daily basis. You might have children whose safety you are also concerned about. This is one of the most common problems that spouses face who leave an abusive partner and yet cannot escape their continued violence. Permanent restraining orders were created to help protect spouses who have suffered violence at the hands of their partner, and this kind of restraining order is intended to prevent further abuse from the aggressor.

Getting a permanent restraining order in place against your former spouse or partner can be very difficult without the support of a skilled lawyer on your side. The team at Lopez Law can help you to get the permanent restraining order that you need so that you can feel safe again and move on with your life. This is a critical document in many cases when an abuser is involved in a relationship. Having an expert team of lawyers working on your case can make all the difference in the outcome of your request for this kind of restraining order.

What is a Domestic Violence Injunction?

This kind of injunction in the state of Florida is used in the way that many other states use restraining orders. This order restricts the access of one party to another on penalty of legal action. Injunctions keep the violent party from accessing the property, visiting children, or throwing the target of violent actions out of the house. These injunctions might also restrict the movement of the offending party and even tell them how close they are allowed to come to the party that they have been taking violent action against.

This kind of injunction can be very useful when you are dealing with a violent person who has not obeyed the requirements of other restraining orders or who has not responded to requests to stay away from the property or to discontinue interactions with children and other parties adjacent to the relationship.

Some Additional Limitations That Can Be Related To This Order

When an injunction is in place which limits the access of one party to another, there are some other consequences that can impact the offending party. These other limitations can be the main driver for seeking an injunction over a regular restraining order.

· Loss of Custody

When spouses have shared children, the violence that has been happening in the relationship can impact the children as well. This can be the main argument for getting this kind of injunction because the children are being negatively impacted by the actions of the violent spouse. In many cases, this kind of injunction will take away all parenting rights from the offending party, and it prevents them from coming into contact with the children unless the restraining order has been lifted.

· Loss of Other Rights

The loss of custody is not the only right that can be taken from the party who has taken violent actions against a spouse. The injunction can also take away the violent party’s rights to acquire, own, or use guns in the state of Florida. There are limitations on purchases of this kind of item in another state as well. There might also be other loss of rights that are specifically related to the kind of violent actions that were taken against the other spouse or the children involved in the relationship.

· Participation in Programs

In many cases, this injunction necessitates that the violent spouse goes to a Batterer’s Intervention Program, which lasts for up to 26 weeks. This program is intended to help the violent party to see the other side of the situation and learn from their actions with the hope of improvement in their behavior in the future. This is one of the only ways that a violent spouse can seek a change to the limitations that prevent them from seeing their children.

· Social Stigma

One of the other consequences of this kind of injunction is a social stigma that can lead to the spouse needing to relocate to another neighborhood or to leave the community that is aware of their actions. This can be just as much of a punishment and limiting factor as other limitations that are legal in nature, and it can help to create space between the abused spouse and the violent party. This is one of the considerations that is not often looked at when seeking this injunction that can lead to improvement in the safety and security of the spouse who has been harmed.

Seeking A Permanent Restraining Order Can Be Critical

If you have been harmed by your spouse or partner and are scared for your safety, you should seek the support of a skilled lawyer to help you to secure an injunction. This is the best solution to remove the rights of access from spouses who are violent or dangerous and should not be able to interact with their children or the spouse they have taken violent actions against. When you need to seek an injunction against a violent person, you will have to have legal support on your side to be able to secure it.

A Godsend

Mr. Lopez was a Godsend and really helped me with my situation. Him and the entire firm were very diligent and helped speed the early stages of the process along due to a pressing situation. Throughout my experience working with the firm, they were always responsive and available any time I had a question or wanted to check on the state of affairs. Hopefully I won’t have to recommend Lopez Law Group to my friends or family, but if those unfortunate circumstances arise then there’s only one name I would trust. Thank you again for all your help!

Thank you Geoff Pfeiffer, for your assistance when my HOA pushed back on my installation of the Solar Panels on my home. Your succinct and eloquent statements of my rights to them turned a “solar panels are not allowed on the front side of the roof, to a 100% approval with no changes needed. Thank you for helping me quickly resolved what was gearing up to be a fight with the HOA.

“I Will Never Use Another Lawyer”

We couldn’t be more satisfied with Sean’s work and are so grateful we chose him to represent us. He works so diligently and tenaciously to get results, and somehow manages to combine being a consummate professional yet friendly and approachable. I was honestly terrified of receiving the final bill considering the hours upon hours he invested in our case (texts, calls, emails, meetings, etc.) after hearing nightmare lawyer stories from other people, but when I did I was shocked at how little he charged us. I never thought I’d say I wanted to pay somebody more than they charged, yet this time I did. I will never use another lawyer; we will use Sean for any and all representation we will ever need, and I urge others to do the same. Thank you, Sean!
