Our Law Firm Helps and Supports Victims of Domestic Violence
According to City of Orlando statistics, nearly 3,000 cases of domestic violence occur in the city each year. Your immediate safety is critical. If you are in danger, call 911 or Florida’s Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-500-1119. Do not hesitate or wait to call for help if you are afraid or someone is threatening you.
When you are safe from imminent danger, you can seek long-term protection. Our family law attorneys serving Orlando can explain what an injunction is and why it may be necessary. We’ll also explain each step in the process of securing one and stand by your side from start to finish.
You Do Not Have to Live With Your Abuser to Seek an Injunction
Many think an injunction against a domestic violence perpetrator is only available for spouses and domestic partners. However, you are entitled to protection even if the perpetrator does not reside with you.
Florida Statutes § 741.28 defines domestic violence as any of the following acts that lead to the injury or death of a member of the perpetrator’s family or household:
- Assault or aggravated assault
- Battery or aggravated battery
- Stalking or aggravated stalking
- Sexual assault or battery
- False imprisonment
In some cases, Orlando courts will allow you to seek an injunction against someone who does not share your home, such as if you previously lived together or have a child together. An Orlando injunction attorney from our law firm will help you fight to obtain it.

Our Team Will Help You Apply for the Right Protective Order for You
While they are designed to offer a measure of safety, all protective orders are not the same. According to the Florida Courts, you can apply for one of five different protective injunctions in Florida. At Bogin, Munns & Munns, our injunction lawyers represent domestic violence survivors in Orlando.
Domestic Violence Injunction
On your behalf, we will seek a domestic violence protective order if you have a shared residence or child in common with the perpetrator. We will help you meet the requirement by proving you:
- Were the victim of domestic abuse
- Believed you were at immediate risk
- Are entitled to temporary financial support
A domestic violence order of protection can require the offender to surrender dangerous weapons. It can also require participation in a Batterers’ Intervention Program (BIP).
Repeat Violence Injunction
We can pursue a repeat violence injunction if the same offender harmed you more than once. Your Orlando injunction lawyer will work to prove at least one of the incidences of violence occurred within the previous six months and that you fear a repeat offense.
Dating Violence Injunction
Your Orlando injunction attorney can help you seek a protective order against someone you have dated if you have been or believe you will be subjected to violence. You must have been dating within the last six months. You can obtain this type of injunction as a minor or adult. A parent can file on behalf of a minor.
Sexual Violence Injunction
We will pursue an injunction on your behalf for any act of sexual violence perpetrated against you. Our team will ensure your petition for a protective order complies with all state requirements.
Stalking and cyberstalking are serious crimes. We can help you get an injunction if someone is stalking you or your child in person or on the internet.
