Daytona Beach Injunctions Laywer

Helping Secure Injunctions in Florida

An injunction is a court order which prevents one person from doing something harmful to another. In some cases, one may petition for an injunction based on past behavior to prevent said behavior from occurring again. In other cases, someone may petition for an injunction out of concern for their safety or well-being, and to prevent certain actions from occurring at any point in the future.

It is a sad reality, but when divorce proceedings turn volatile, filing for an injunction may be the logical next step. This is why you should consider hiring a Daytona Beach family law attorney from the firm of Buckmaster & Ellzey for assistance in either securing or fighting an injunction. At Buckmaster & Ellzey, we have the resources and experience to help protect you against a spiteful and potentially dangerous spouse. However, we will also fight to make sure your former partner does not use the injunction process to prevent you from living your life.

Understanding Injunctions

In the state of Florida, civil injunctions are also known as restraining orders. There are two types of parties involved in the filing process for restraining orders/civil injunctions, the petitioner and the respondent.

Petitioners may file for either a preliminary or permanent injunction against a respondent. Preliminary injunctions are filed for in cases where no harm has come to the petitioner yet, but they have received threats or have reason to believe they may be harmed in the future. This type of injunction is more common in divorce proceedings, and is usually put in place for anywhere between one month and a year at a time. In many cases, premilitary injunctions are filed by a petitioner to give the respondent time to change their behavior.

However, in cases where the petitioner has already suffered harm at the hands of the respondent, or has a reason to believe the respondent will not change their dangerous or threatening behavior in the future, they may be able to secure a permanent injunction. This kind of injunction remains in place until further notice. To invalidate a permanent injunction, either the petitioner or respondent must file a petition with the court. For this petition to be successful, significant change in the behavior or circumstances of either party must be demonstrated.

The 5 different types of protective civil injunctions available in the state of Florida are:

  • Domestic violence injunctions
  • Sexual violence injunctions
  • Dating violence injunctions
  • Repeat violence injunctions
  • Stalking injunctions

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: If I’ve Been Arrested, What Rights Do I Have?
    A: In our country, being arrested does not deprive you of the many rights you have as a citizen. When you were arrested, you should have been informed of your Miranda Rights. You may ask the police officer why you are being arrested and can refuse to answer questions regarding the charges. You have the right to an attorney and the right to a fair and speedy trial. Using a qualified and experienced Daytona Beach criminal defense attorney will work to your advantage in ensuring your rights are protected.
  • Why Should I Hire an Attorney to Represent Me?

    In the case of Buckmaster & Ellzey, we have prosecuted thousands of cases as an Assistant State Attorney. On the side of criminal defense, we have defended hundreds of individuals, such as you, that have faced charges for criminal offenses. Having served on both sides gives us a unique opportunity to fight for our clients.

    We understand how prosecutors operate, the types of evidence that they will bring forth and what arguments they are likely to pursue in a criminal case. This first-hand knowledge allows us to better prepare and successfully resolve cases.

  • What Are the Differences Between a Misdemeanor and a Felony?
    Generally, misdemeanors are considered minor offenses. The fines for them will be relatively small and any time spent in jail will be in terms of weeks or months, not years. A felony conviction can result in steep fines, probation, parole and prison sentences for years. They can remain on your permanent record and may adversely affect future educational and employment opportunities. With the assistance of an attorney who is willing to aggressively defend your rights, felony charges can sometimes be reduced to misdemeanors.
  • What Happens Now That I’ve Been Charged With an Offense?
    The first step will be what is known as an arraignment. A judge will tell you the charges against you and there are many decisions that will need to be made at this time, such as how you will plea to the charges, what bail will be set at and others. We understand that facing criminal charges can be tough and would like you to take advantage of our experience to help you successfully navigate through the criminal justice system.
  • What Is the Difference Between Contested and Uncontested Divorce?
    There are two types of divorce in Daytona Beach: contested and uncontested divorce. An uncontested divorce is typically preferred because they can usually be completed with far less hassle and in far less time. However, to go through the uncontested divorce process, the couple must reach an agreement on all significant divorce-related issues. These issues include: • Property division • Debt allocation • Alimony • Child support • Child custody • Visitation When there is disagreement over one or more of these issues, the couple will need to go through the contested divorce process. In such cases, the couple will either need to hire a divorce mediator to help them through the negotiation process or have the family court decide for them.
