What Must a Seminole Domestic Violence Lawyer do to protect a Client?
First, we design a safety plan for you that will consider your specific situation along with current family laws in Florida. I then will pursue a Temporary Injunction for Protection from Domestic Violence. These temporary injunctions can be made permanent after a hearing, but the initial injunction can be obtained without a hearing at all
Obtaining this injunction allows us to secure your safety and the safety of your children in your home, and to protect you as much as we can by giving you the ability to have your spouse arrested for just coming near you. Once you are safe, I will help to protect you in other ways, including protecting your money and assets.
In some cases, we can obtain an Emergency Temporary Injunction for you on the same day that you call me. It is important for you to remember that you do not have to wait until you have been harmed to get help.
