Restraining orders (referred to as “protective injunctions” in Florida) are court orders which place certain restrictions upon a person. These may include orders to: stay away from a specific person and his or her place of employment, refrain from contacting the alleged victim in any way, surrender any weapons owned, and even move out of a shared residence with the victim.
Have you been served a restraining order? If so, you must abide by its terms. However, you can contact a defense attorney immediately in order to find out how you can fight the restraining order and work to have it lifted. It may have been sought for frivolous purposes based upon false allegations. You deserve to contest the injunction and an attorney at Musca Law can help.
