Broward County Restraining Orders
Oftentimes, during or after a divorce, one party may need to seek protection from a violent offending spouse by filing for a restraining order. A restraining order is an order issued by a court to protect a person from physical pain or injury or the threat of pain or injury.
A restraining order tells the other party to stay away from you, to move out of your home, or to stop coming to your home. It can also give you temporary custody of your children, though it cannot be used only for this purpose. The person can be arrested if he/she threatens or physically hurts you, or contacts you or comes near you when the restraining order says he/she is not allowed to do so.
