Repeat Violence Injunctions in Florida

To get a repeat violence injunction in Florida, the petitioner is required to demonstrate to the court by competent substantial evidence that there have been two separate incidents of violence or stalking – one of which has to have occurred within the past 6 months.  The two incidents of violence have to be directed at the petitioner or a member of the petitioner’s immediate family.  Sending unwanted flowers or non-threatening letters or cards are not sufficient to constitute stalking.

Usually, this type of injunction is filed on the neighbor in neighbor cases, co-worker against another co-worker, friend on a friend or other relationships that are not domestic or dating related.
