Winter Park Domestic Violence Injunction Attorney
Many dissolution of marriage cases are initiated after one of the parties has been served with an Injunction for Protection against Domestic Violence. Other types of injunctions which are often issued unrelated to dissolution of marriage are Injunctions for Protection against Repeat Violence and Injunctions for Protection against Dating Violence. If you have been served with an Injunction you will have a hearing before the Court usually within approximately 15 days. It is important that you be properly advised and have representation at this hearing. Although this is not a criminal proceeding, important rights can be granted or taken away from you at this hearing, including being removed from your home, and limiting contact with any minor children. Temporary support obligations can also be established at these hearings. Contact our Winter Park domestic violence attorneys for more information.
Importantly, be aware that these injunction hearings may have a significant bearing on subsequent or pending time-sharing litigation, where the court must consider:
Evidence of domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse, child abandonment, or child neglect, regardless of whether a prior or pending action relating to those issues has been brought, and, conversely.
