No one should live in fear of domestic abuse

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.

Protective injunctions offer protection from domestic violence

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.

No one should have to suffer domestic violence

The risk of domestic abuse is faced by many people in Florida. In numbers released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, (CDC) one in four women and one in nine men are victimized by domestic violence in any given year. That breaks down to a woman being abused every nine seconds. The problem is not limited to any race, economic income bracket, religion or education level.

Navy officer found dead from a possible domestic violence dispute

A Florida woman who was a member of the U.S. Navy and had just received a promotion to chief petty officer did not live long enough to celebrate the promotion. The woman received news of the promotion on a Friday and was found dead in her home the following Monday, possibly as a result of domestic violence. While no details were available, it was reported that she did not die from natural causes.

Domestic abuse has no boundaries

No one should have to live in fear of domestic abuse. Sadly, domestic abuse is very prevalent in society today and knows no boundaries. Anyone, regardless of age, gender, socioeconomic status or race can be at risk for domestic violence. In a recent Florida case, a female police officer says she was the victim of an attack by her boyfriend.
