ORLANDO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND INJUNCTIONS LAWYER
Domestic Violence is a special breed of violent crime. There are many times when a relationship ends with allegations of domestic violence. Being accused of domestic violence can have many consequences. You may be required to serve a probation sentence and complete a Batterer’s Intervention Program, or you may be sentenced to jail or prison. You may also be told that you are not allowed to have contact with the alleged victim, and that you can’t return to the home you shared.
You need an experienced lawyer that will fight for your rights, and is knowledgeable in these areas. Contact us to have your case reviewed by a former prosecutor who specifically handled cases in the Domestic Violence Unit.
Domestic Violence Crimes include:
- Aggravated Assault
- Aggravated Battery
- Battery by Strangulation
- Harassing Phone Calls
- Tampering with a Witness
- Violation of Injunction
- Violation of No Contact Order
Injunctions are commonly referred to as restraining orders. Oftentimes, when an alleged victim reports an act of domestic violence, he or she may also attempt to get an injunction against. An injunction is a legal document that orders you to stay away from a person.
It is important to consult with a knowledgeable lawyer regarding both the criminal case, and the civil injunction. You should not attend an injunction hearing alone, as you make make statements that can be used against you in the criminal case.
If someone obtains an injunction against you, there can be many unforeseen consequences. Some consequences include: (1) You may be ordered to stay away from the home you shared or other locations, (2) You will not be allowed to own a gun, (3) You may be required to complete a Batterer’s Intervention Program, and (4) You may be required to complete other conditions, if the Court finds them to be appropriate.
If you violate an injunction, you can be prosecuted for committing a crime, or you may be held in contempt of court by the judge who issued the injunction. Both options may result in a jail sentence. Talk to a knowledgeable local lawyer before you attend any injunction hearing, and if you are accused of violating an injunction.
