What is a Repeat Violence Injunction?

Since we discussed the similarities between this and a domestic violence restraining order, it’s important to know that the critical difference is the difficulty in obtaining it. In the case of domestic abuse, there needs to only be the sense of danger or feeling of fear, whereas in this particular case there has to be evidence to show that the individual has committed multiple crimes that have affected you. According to the State of Florida statutes, there are three things that must be considered in order to qualify:

  • Who is the target?
  • How long has it been since the last incident?
  • Are there different incidents involved?

If you or a family member are being targeted by another, or have been in the past, you’re already on your way to getting the security you deserve. In this level it’s not important what the actual crime is, but rather who the crime is intended to affect. If you cannot prove that you or a family member are the intended target, then there is no case that can be made for you; so it’s important to establish this first and foremost.

Less important that what crimes are being committed is the frequency of them. If the person you are seeking protection from has acted against you within the last six months, then you have a very strong case to get what you seek. It’s therefore important that whenever you have a crime committed against you, to have it cleared as quickly as possible.

Thirdly, there has to be two unique incidents of violence or some form of violence in your lifetime. The reason that this is important is that it shows the judge that you are often targeted, and therefore you’ll have a stronger case available to you. Your case strength can grow depending on how many crimes have been committed against you.

If you are able to prove these three things, then you have an incredibly good chance at getting the protection you seek. Even with this, it will not be a guarantee, and therefore it’s important that you have an experienced lawyer on your side. By getting in touch with Whitney S.
