Domestic Violence Attorneys in Melbourne, FL

Protecting the Abused and Defending the Wrongfully Accused

Spouses, partners, children, and family members who are at risk of domestic violence need a restraining order – or a domestic violence injunction – for their protection.

When filing for a domestic violence injunction in the state of Florida, you do not have to be physically injured before you can file. You can file for an injunction if you have reason to believe that you are at risk of becoming a victim of domestic abuse. If the court determines that you are in danger, a temporary injunction may be issued until the matter is fully heard by the court.

At the Figueroa Law Group, P.A., we can help you file for a domestic violence injunction. We also represent individuals facing allegations of domestic violence, who have lost their rights because of a wrongful accusation. Whatever your situation may be, rest assured that our domestic violence lawyers in Melbourne, FL are here to help.

Call us at (321) 248-1011 now to seek guidance.

Types of Domestic Violence Injunctions

There are two types of domestic violence injunctions: temporary and permanent.

The temporary (ex parte) injunction can immediately take effect and offers full protection until a court date is set and the full hearing has taken place.

Once a successful hearing has occurred, the final judgment of injunction (permanent) is entered. This type of injunction may offer greater protection and last longer.

What to Do When Facing Wrongful Accusations of Domestic Violence

If you are an innocent person who has been wrongfully accused of domestic violence, then you could have a domestic violence injunction (restraining order) filed against you. Some people may file an injunction to gain an advantage in a family matter out of revenge, anger, or as an attempt to ruin one’s reputation.

If you are facing any abuse or violence allegations, you will want a skilled and experienced domestic violence lawyer in Melbourne, FL by your side. When you retain the Figueroa Law Group, P.A., you will find caring and dedicated attorneys who understand the ins and outs of domestic violence injunctions.
