What is an Injunction in Florida?

In Florida, an injunction is a court order that prohibits a person from doing something. Injunctions can be issued in a variety of cases, including domestic violence, child custody, and civil rights.

There are two types of injunctions in Florida: temporary and permanent. A temporary injunction is issued for a short period of time, usually until a hearing can be held to determine whether a permanent injunction should be issued. A permanent injunction is issued for an indefinite period of time.

To obtain an injunction, you must file a petition with the court. 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 an 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.

Injunctions are an important tool for protecting people from harm. If you believe that you need an injunction, you should consult with an attorney to discuss your legal options.

Here are some examples of when an injunction may be issued in Florida:

  • To prevent domestic violence
  • To protect a child from abuse or neglect
  • To prevent someone from harassing or stalking you
  • To stop someone from interfering with your business
  • To enforce a court order

If you believe that you need an injunction, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible.
