Lawyers Defending Against Restraining Orders in the Gainesville Area
Injunctions/Restraining Orders in Florida
There is no getting around the fact that domestic violence is an extremely sensitive subject. The consequences that you could face, however, are too severe for you not to take the matter seriously.
In addition to the consequences for the entry of a final judgment of injunction, the allegations can have an effect on a criminal case if the allegations from the injunction gave rise to a criminal charge. An injunction can also have drastic consequences involving children in a family law case, including keeping you from being able to enter your own home or spend time with your children.
If you have been accused of domestic violence and a temporary injunction has been taken out against you, it is important to understand the impact this has on both cases. Many criminal defense attorneys will focus only on resolving the criminal charges, whereas family law attorneys tend to focus on the family law matters. If you make statements, those statements can be used against you in both the family law case and in the criminal case. Those statements could negatively impact your legal position in both forums.
When criminal charges are involved, divorce and other family law matters always get more complicated. Even if you think this situation can be handled delicately, you need a lawyer on your side to protect your rights.
