Protective Orders & Injunctions in Florida
An injunction is a court order that prohibits or restricts someone from contacting another individual. In Florida, an injunction can be filed if a person is a victim of domestic violence, dating violence, repeat violence (e.g. two violent incidents or stalking), or sexual violence.
Common ways to violate an injunction include:
- Calling, texting, e-mailing, or otherwise directly or indirectly communicating with the alleged victim
- Being within close proximity to the alleged victim’s home, workplace, school, or any place regularly frequented by their family members
- Destroying or defacing the alleged victim’s property
- Committing another offense against the alleged victim
- Refusing to surrender guns and ammunition despite the court order
Violating an injunction or restraining order in Florida is a first-degree misdemeanor, which can result in a jail sentence of up to one year and maximum fine of $1,000. However, if you are accused of multiple violations by allegedly harassing or threatening the alleged victim, you could be charged with aggravated stalking, which is a second-degree felony that carries a prison sentence of up to 15 years and a fine no more than $10,000.
