Orders of Protection in Jacksonville, FL

Protection Under the Law with a Restraining Order

In Florida, there are four different types of protection orders, or restraining orders. These court orders are intended to protect a person from possible domestic, repeat, dating or sexual violence. At Hutchinson Law, we have a vast amount of knowledge and experience in obtaining orders of protection for domestic violence victims in Jacksonville.

If you are involved in a domestic violence situation and would like assistance from a qualified and experienced Jacksonville divorce attorney, please call our offices today. If you or your children are at risk of becoming the victim of an act of domestic violence, it could not be more important that an order of protection be put in place immediately, and we can help.

Contact Hutchinson Law today to schedule a case evaluation.

How do I get a protection from violence order?

The initiation of obtaining a protection against violence order begins with the filing of a petition with the court. Once the petition is filed, it is presented to a judge and a temporary 15-day order is granted. This gives time for the parties to appear at a court hearing, which is scheduled within that 15-day period. If the petition is initially denied by the judge, it is often as it appears that there is no "immediate or present danger of violence" as seen by the court after reviewing the petition.

The assistance of a Jacksonville family lawyer is invaluable when filing a petition, as they have the skill required to plead all of the facts sufficient to obtain a temporary order. If the petition is accepted and a hearing is set, evidence will be taken into consideration in order to arrive at a final decision. A final order will usually order the offending party to stay away from the victim, attend parenting classes, substance abuse counseling, or other relevant counseling, and prohibit the offender from possessing firearms during the life of the order.
