Jacksonville Injunction Attorneys
Assisting Duval, Clay, Nassau & St. Johns County Residents with All Aspects of Protective/Restraining Orders
Every day, people all across the United States are harassed, threatened, or made to live in fear by others. It may be a disgruntled neighbor, a friend, a loved one, or even a complete stranger. Tragically, many times the police are not able to do anything about it, and our clients feel there is nothing they can do. Here at Monroe & King, P.A., our Jacksonville injunction attorneys can help you find a solution. We can assist you in applying for an injunction to protect you and your rights and represent you in court.
There are also those who have been falsely accused of harassing or threatening another person. Unfortunately, this happens all too often, and many make the mistake of not fighting it in court. If an injunction is granted against you, you may later be arrested for violation of injunction, which is a first-degree misdemeanor and punishable by up to 12 months in jail.

Types of Injunctions in Florida
The state of Florida allows individuals to request five different types of injunctions, or protective orders. In any instance, a judge may grant a temporary injunction, which stays in effect until both the person seeking the injunction and the respondent (or the person who has had the injunction placed against them) can attend a hearing.
The different types of restraining orders available in Florida include:
- Domestic violence
- Dating violence
- Sexual violence
- Repeat violence
While each type of injunction is slightly different from the next, all have similar consequences for the respondent. In all cases, an injunction prevents the respondent from contacting the victim in any way—whether in person, by phone, via email, or online. In certain cases, an injunction will prevent the respondent from seeing his or her children and may require the respondent to forfeit his or her right to own a firearm/ammunition. Additionally, violations of injunctions come with serious penalties, including but not limited to jail time.
