Not only do abusers use their “ties” to prevent their victims from speaking out, but they also use these “ties” to make sure no one finds out about their misdeeds. Unfortunately, as the situation persists and the abuser continues their actions, the victims are more likely to face severe trauma or even death.

While the case is being heard, victims of domestic violence and those in the household who may be at risk of abuse can request an injunction to prevent further abuse from occurring.Boca Raton Domestic Violence Attorney domestic violence attorney

If you live in Boca Raton, FL, their injunction requests can be filed at the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit of Florida. If the abuser lives in a different area, the request must be filed with the circuit court, which handles cases there.

When an injunction case is filed and heard, the court will consider the following factors to make their decision:

  • The previous or existing relationship of both parties
  • History of intent to harm or attempted abuse done
  • Records of threats directed to the children
  • History of animal abuse, if any
  • History or record of weapons’ use
  • Criminal history of the abuser, including violence or threat of violence
  • History or record of the abuser in committing destruction of property, if any
  • Any record of instances where the abuser acted differently, which caused the other party to believe they are in danger of being abused or be a victim of domestic violence

The court may order a temporary or final injunction when it sees that there is due cause for the request. Either injunction order comes with specific protections to prevent further abuse from taking place and the penalties the abuser may face should they violate the injunction.
