Injunction Lawyer in Immokalee Florida
An Injunction is a court order that instructs an individual to stop doing a particular action. Most of the time injunctions work as a tool for protecting an individual or individuals. In Florida, injunctions are a form of protection in place or what other states call a restraining order. Like a restraining order, this is essentially an order by a court directing someone to no longer have contact with another person or persons.
You should consider getting an injunction if you are a victim of stalking, cyberstalking, domestic violence, or sexual assault.
How are Injunction Cases Different from Criminal Cases?
There are a number of ways in which an injunction proceeding is different from a criminal proceeding.
-Injunctions the case is between a petitioner, the person seeking the injunction, and the respondent.
-Unlike a criminal proceeding, the respondent is not being charged with a crime or directly facing the risk of jail time.
-Since injunction hearings are not criminal proceedings, there is only a standard amount of proof required to grant a permanent injunction than in criminal proceedings.
-Since an injunction proceeding is civil, rather than criminal in nature the criminal rules of procedure don’t apply.
