Orders of Protection in Florida
An order of protection is similar to a restraining order in that it prohibits a person from coming into contact with someone who has accused him/her of domestic violence, spousal abuse or child abuse. By working with a Miami orders of protection attorney regarding your order of protection, you have a chance to have the order lifted. An attorney will be able to petition to have the order lifted and then prove your side of the story with evidence, witness testimony and more.
Sometimes a Florida court may be hasty in issuing a temporary restraining order, a restraining order or an order of protection. In the effort to protect real victims of abuse and violence, an injunction may be issued which is not based upon hard evidence, only upon the accusations of an alleged victim. By working with a defense lawyer in your area, you have the chance to disprove the charges against you and therefore experience relief from the order that has been placed against you.
