"My wife filed a domestic violence injunction against me. I don’t want to see her anyway, should I even bother showing up to the hearing? I’m Steve Kramer of the Kramer law firm. I’m a Florida family and divorce attorney. This is something that comes up in family cases a ton. Domestic violence injunctions are a repeat occurance in family cases. And sometimes they’re warranted because there is domestic violence and sometimes they’re used as a tool in the case. What you have to understand is a domestic violence injunction is a serious issue. Having an injunction entered in against you can affect you very negatively and will affect your right to bear arms, and you will have to surrender your firearms immediately. It can affect security clearances. It can affect future job searches. It can affect background checks. It can have all kind of implications on your future and you need to take it seriously.

The other thing that can happen is that in the domestic violence injunction if you have children that the court can enter an order establishing your contact schedule with the children. So even though you think it’s about seeing your wife, you may wind up having a limitation of how often you can see your children. Or you may wind up having to see your children under supervised visitation at a family center, where they watch over you and don’t trust you to be in a room with your child. These are really, really serious matters and you have to, you have to take them seriously. And you should defend them aggressively. And if you’re trying to get an injunction against your husband or wife because they’ve been violent towards you, it’s also a good idea to have an attorney. Because it’s an issue that’s complex. It’s actually going to be a full hearing where peoplke are going to testify. Just like a trial, there is going to be testimony from witnesses, there is going to be a judge up there. At the end of all that testimony, when everybody has had their say, when all the witnesses have testified, the judge is going to make the judge’s decision and you may or may not like it. But you’re probably going to like it more if you’ve got a skilled, experienced family attorney with you. And that’s why I’m telling you about this because we deal with this all the time.
