Temporary Injunctions

If you or your child has been physically abused or threatened with domestic violence, our attorneys can help file for an initial domestic violence injunction.

Provided the claims of domestic violence are legally sufficient, the temporary injunction may be granted by a judge – often ex-parte (without a formal hearing) – within 24 hours of the request. Additionally, a hearing on the merits of the case for a permanent injunction must be scheduled within 15 days.

Temporary injunctions typically order the alleged abuser to:

  • Move out of the home
  • Have no contact with the petitioning spouse or partner

Temporary injunctions can also place additional restrictions on contact with the children, as well as address other financial matters such as spousal and child support.

Permanent Injunctions

About 15 days after a temporary domestic violence injunction is granted, a hearing is held to determine whether to continue the injunction permanently.

A permanent domestic violence protection injunction may be granted for several months or even several years. The order may bar all communication and contact, or it may provide for supervised visitation with children.

While temporary orders are generally granted liberally, judges are more cautious in granting permanent injunctions. Such an order has enormous ramifications for custody and visitation, as well as divorce proceedings. The court will require proof that abuse has occurred or that threats were real.

Do not go into one of these hearings without experienced counsel to represent you. In support of your request for an injunction, our skilled attorneys will prepare and submit documents to the court on your behalf and present your case to the court.
