Domestic Violence and Injunctions

Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain control over another intimate partner. Domestic violence may be physical, sexual, emotional, economic, psychological, threats, stalking, or cyberstalking. Victims of domestic violence may be spouses, sexual/dating/intimate partners, family members, children, or cohabitants.

A domestic violence injunction is a judicial order that restrains a person from engaging in domestic violence against another. Typically, it directs a person not to have contact with the other person. If the two parties have children together, it may outline appropriate forms of contact regarding the children, including a timesharing schedule and instructions for exchanges of the children.

In Florida, a violation of an injunction is classified as a first-degree misdemeanor, with penalties of up to one year in jail and substantial fines.
