What is an injunction for protection against domestic violence?

No relationship is perfect. We all find a time where we do not agree with our significant other or we just simply do not get along. However, these times are often few and far between, and they are easily resolved and moved past for most couples. Unfortunately, some relationships have instances of major disputes that turn violent or abusive. In these cases, a spouse or partner may take steps to end domestic abuse against them. However, these steps could mean serious consequences for the accused abuser if an injunction is filed.

What is an injunction for protection against domestic violence? This is an order used to protect against domestic violence. It is sometimes referred to as a restraining order. This court order is used to prevent or stop an accused abuser from doing certain acts. This includes conduct such as abusing the petitioner, contacting them or even coming near them.

In addition to preventing an alleged abuser from doing certain acts; it can make them do certain acts. This includes leaving the home and even paying temporary child support if children are involved. The terms of an injunction can be strict, and if temporary order or an injunction is in place and the accused violates the terms, he or she could be arrested for violating the order.

Because the terms and conditions that follow an injunction for domestic abuse can be serious, it is important that those accused of such an act understand their rights. This means exploring defense options that could help disprove the allegations or having an injunction duration reduced or terminated.
