Our Florida Family Lawyers Fight on Behalf of Domestic Abuse Victims
Domestic violence is taken extremely seriously in Florida by both criminal and civil courts. A domestic abuse victim can petition the court to create a legal document which requires the individual who perpetrated the domestic violence to stay away from their victim.
The criminal justice and legal systems are structured in such a way that they can provide quick relief for the victims of domestic abuse. It is very important that you speak up and get the assistance you deserve. Our experienced family law attorneys will walk you through your options and help you take your domestic violence or divorce case to court to prevent you from being hurt any more.

The Types of Domestic Violence and What You Can do
There are many acts which are not necessarily violent in nature, but can still be considered acts of domestic violence. In Florida, examples include:
- Sexual assault
- False imprisonment
- Any other offense which results in physical injury or death
Regardless of which type of domestic violence you or your family members are enduring, it is best to take immediate action. The first thing you should do is go to a safe location and notify the authorities about what has happened to you. You may also wish to press charges against the person who has abused you and hold them accountable. If you want to pursue divorce, get a restraining order, or take any other legal action to protect yourself, our compassionate and skilled family lawyers can help.
