At South Florida Legal Rescue, LLC, you will have an ally who has more than 20 years of experience providing high-quality service and securing favorable results in family law cases. I am attorney Jennifer H. Milne. My passion lies in representing clients who might not otherwise be able to afford an attorney to make sure they receive a fair outcome, particularly in cases involving abuse.
Guidance Through The Stressful Restraining Order Process
An injunction for domestic violence in Florida – also called a restraining order – is a court order intended to protect abuse survivors from their abuser. I can assist you with the steps of obtaining one, which go something like this:
- Fill out the petition for a restraining order
- File the papers a court clerk
- Serve the respondent with the papers
- Attend a court hearing
You can seek an injunction against a current or former romantic partner, relative or member of your household. A family law attorney like me can help you understand more about your options.
Protecting Your Rights As A Parent
Allegations of domestic violence or neglect can negatively impact your parental rights. Even if you are not accused of perpetrating the abuse, a judge might rule that your children are not safe in your physical custody. Having handled numerous custody cases involving allegations of domestic abuse, neglect, substance abuse, mental illness and more, I strive to prioritize your children’s best interests and preserve your parental rights.
