Domestic Violence allegations can turn your life completely upside down. It is a recipe for disaster to attempt to face these sorts of allegations without experienced counsel in your corner. In Florida, domestic Violence allegations are addressed in both the criminal divisions and civil divisions with Petitions for Injunctions Against Domestic Violence (among other types of Injunctions) or, as they are known colloquially, “Restraining Orders.” At the Law Offices of Joseph Bosco, we have experience with both sides of this sensitive equation, representing both Petitioners and Respondents in South Florida’s tri-county area and beyond.
In Florida, domestic violence criminal charges are defined as any of the following: assault, aggravated assault, battery, aggravated battery, sexual assault, sexual battery, stalking, aggravated stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, or any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death of one family or household member. If you have been arrested for domestic violence anywhere in South Florida on domestic violence charges, you need to retain a domestic violence lawyer in Broward County, Miami-Dade County or Palm Beach County for immediate help.
Domestic Violence is also frequently addressed in the civil courts through hearings for Petitions for Injunction or “Restraining Orders.” If you are the victim of domestic violence or have reasonable cause to believe that you are in immediate danger of becoming a victim of any act of domestic violence, you can petition the Court for an injunction against domestic violence or a “restraining order” against the abuser. Similarly, if an individual is served with court papers indicating that there is someone seeking injunctive relief against them, that Respondent needs a lawyer to help defend against the allegations. It is unwise to simply “go it alone” in Court in these situations.
