Injunctions Against Dating Violence
Tampa Domestic Violence Attorneys
Dating violence is the action or threat of violence of any kind in a courtship or dating situation. It can include sexual assault, verbal abuse, emotional abuse, or physical abuse. Not everyone is aware that there are legal avenues which can be used to end such a situation. At Givens Givens Sparks, our Tampa domestic violence lawyers make it a point to provide protection to our clients when they need us the most.
Givens Givens Sparks has been helping individuals with relationship violence circumstances with over 135 years of collective experience. We care about our clients. We work discreetly and aggressively in advocating for dating violence victims. You have rights and if it is in your best interest to remove the violent person from your presence, you may be able to obtain an injunction from the court. Injunctions (also called restraining orders or orders of protection) are official court orders for the offending person or persons to not do, or to cease an action.

- Your sexual partner or date has created an atmosphere of fear in your surrounding environment
- Your sexual partner or date has become verbally aggressive and you don’t know how to escape it
