Florida Violations of Domestic Violence Injunctions
Attorneys Defending Against Domestic Violence Violations
The terms of domestic violence injunctions can cause major interference to a person's life. Nonetheless, those terms must be followed, even if the injunction was filed by one spouse against the other and its terms require staying out of the family home. Unfortunately, it can be very easy to violate those terms, even unintentionally.
If you have been accused of violating a domestic violence injunction, you are facing a criminal charge that can have serious repercussions if you are convicted. At The Umansky Law Firm, our criminal defense lawyers are here to defend you against these repercussions.

Not the Same as Being Accused of Domestic Violence
If you have been accused of violating a domestic violence injunction, or any other protective injunction, such as a dating violence injunction or a repeat violence injunction, it is important to understand that this is not necessarily the same as being accused of domestic violence. The accusation in these cases is that you violated the terms of the injunction, which could be something as simple as coming within a certain proximity of the person who filed the injunction. It does not necessarily mean that you committed any abuse.
However, these matters are all closely intertwined. Our Orlando criminal defense lawyers can sort through them and defend you against them, whether you are charged with a violation of a protection order or you have been charged with domestic violence.
