Charged With Domestic Violence? Our Domestic Violence Lawyers Can Help

It is not uncommon to disagree with a spouse, romantic partner, a family member, or someone you live with. Sometimes these arguments turn into physical altercations. Domestic violence can not only lead to serious criminal charges but also a restraining order to keep the alleged aggressor away from the alleged victim and even your home! Violating a restraining order is punishable by serious penalties. False allegations of domestic violence are not uncommon. False accusations are often made as relationships break up or separation or divorce proceedings are filed.

If you have violated the terms of a restraining order in Florida, you still have an opportunity to explain your actions and avoid criminal conviction with the help of an experienced attorney. At Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A., our legal team can protect your rights, reputation, and freedom as we defend you against the allegations of domestic violence.

Penalties For Violating A Restraining Order In Florida

Although a restraining order is often issued in civil court, violating them can lead to criminal penalties. Violating a Florida restraining order is a first-degree misdemeanor, which carries a jail sentence of up to one year and a maximum $1,000 fine.

A conviction for violating a restraining order can also cost you your job or make it difficult to maintain employment and have a negative impact on child custody issues. Your Second Amendment right to possess firearms will be impacted if a restraining order is issued against you.
