Living in fear of violence in the home can give rise to anxiety, depression and fear for one's life. No one in Florida should have to live in such a situation. Sadly, these situations are far too common. A recent series of reported incidents involving a Miami-Dade high school teacher is a current example of an alleged domestic abuse case.
Many people, including individuals who are potentially experiencing abuse, think that domestic violence only includes physical violence. In reality, there are many ways that domestic violence can present itself, apart from physical aggression.
No one should have to live in fear of a family member or other person in Florida. Domestic violence or domestic abuse is sadly an ever present threat for too many people. Protection from abuse can sometimes be obtained through a legal document called a protective injunction, also known as a restraining order.
