You can get an injunction in Florida as quickly as the same day you file the petition. This is called a “temporary injunction” and it is valid for 15 days. The court will then schedule a hearing to determine whether to grant a “permanent injunction” which is valid indefinitely.
To get a temporary injunction, you must file a petition with the court and serve it on the person you are seeking the injunction against. The petition must state the facts of your case and why you need an injunction. The court will then schedule a hearing to determine whether to grant the injunction.
If the court grants the temporary injunction, the person who is subject to the injunction must comply with its terms. If they do not comply, they may be held in contempt of court.
It is important to note that a temporary injunction is not a guarantee that you will be granted a permanent injunction. The court will consider all of the facts of your case at the hearing on the permanent injunction.
If you believe that you need an injunction, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can help you file the petition, serve it on the other party, and represent you at the hearing.
