Domestic Violence in Florida
In the state of Florida, domestic violence is defined as using intimidation or willfully causing physical harm against a spouse, partner, significant other or previous significant other. Both physical and emotional abuse qualifies as domestic violence and may lead to serious criminal charges. Physical contact with another person does not even have to occur for a person to be charged. Victims of domestic violence and spousal abuse, with the help of their lawyer, typically seek restraining orders against the alleged abuser.
Restraining Orders in Florida
Domestic violence charges often result in restraining orders against the accused. For a restraining order to be granted against an accused individual, there must be sufficient evidence that domestic violence has occurred. Sufficient domestic violence evidence can include destruction of property, assault, threats or harassment. Living with a restraining order can be difficult and violating your restraining order carries its own set of penalties.
A restraining order may prevent you from:
- going home
- visiting your children
- visiting certain establishments when the victim is nearby
