Types of Restraining Orders in Florida

The state of Florida maintains four different types of restraining orders–also called injunctions–for those who are facing violence or the threat of violence/imminent harm. These are:

Steps for Obtaining a Restraining Order

There are both final and temporary, or ex parte, injunctions issued in Florida. To get an ex parte order, which is designed to provide you with immediate support and relief, you will need to file a petition with the County Clerk. You must include convincing evidence in your petition – when it is handed off to a judge, the judge will determine whether a temporary injunction will be granted.

An ex parte order will only stay in effect for a limited number of days. After that, you will need to attend a full hearing. At the full hearing, the judge will listen to your side and the defendant’s side, and then issue a final injunction based on the evidence.
