Restraining Orders in Tampa

Restraining Orders in Tampa

It takes a lot of self-control for any person not to contact the most important person in your life. Even when it is against the law many people  in Tampa do it anyway at their peril. Restraining orders  in Tampa only go one way, against you, the defendant. If the victim is calling you, keep track of the calls and save the messages, but tell them you are under the restraining order  in Tampa and hang up the phone. A lot of so-called victims of domestic violence  in Tampa will abuse the restraining order by inviting you back, get mad at you again and have you arrested again. They won’t get in any trouble for doing this to you, and you’ll go to Orient Road Jail in Tampa. Never risk arrest and inprisonment for violating the restraining order  in Tampa for any reason.

Never ignore a civil restraining order in Tampa, even if you think it was not properly served, was illegally obtained, or based on false information and outright lies. When a judge issues a temporary restraining order  in Tampa, it is illegal to disobey the order. You can be prosecuted and go to jail for ignoring or Violating a Restraining Order in Tampa,
 If you persistently ignore the court’s order by violating the temporary restraining order the judge  in Tampa may impose a permanent restraining order on you that will last at least three years. Go to the court date on the notice to appear with a good domestic violence attorney  in Tampa to represent you. The prosecution can and will use anything you say in your civil case against you in the criminal case.

You may have some property where the victim is living you want to get back. The only way is to hire an attorney or wait until you are appointed an attorney and have the attorney’s investigator contact the victim to arrange to get the defendant’s belongings back or to communicate with the victim for any reason. Restraining orders  in Tampa prohibit contacting the victim through a third party, which includes your friends, family and their friends.

If a defendant needs to get personal belongings from their house they must contact the police  in Tampa and ask them to stand by while they quickly get their essential possessions. Make sure you are clearly more than 150 yards away from the residence when you call the police. The police  in Tampa will not permit any argument about what belongs to whom and what doesn’t. It is better to abandon your belongings than to set yourself up for a misdemeanor conviction for violating a court order  in Tampa that carries the usual domestic violence penalties.

A defendant in a domestic violence case  in Tampa always has a restraining order put on them by the court making it a misdemeanor crime for them to have any direct or indirect contact with the victim. Even if the victim contacts the defendant the order remains in effect until a judge lifts it. A victim cannot lift a restraining order in Tampa, only a judge can. This means that if the victim lives there (or the restraining order incorrectly says they do) a defendant can’t go to their house for any reason even if they pay the rent or own it. Defendants can’t call. It is difficult for defendants to visit their children. Even if a defendant is innocent of any crime they can still be prosecuted for violating the restraining order itself. Most restraining order violation cases  in Tampa are easily proven.

Sometimes the district attorneys office  in Tampa will dismiss a case without filing charges. In this situation the restraining order will still be in place for several days. They can reinstate the charges for a year  in Tampa if it’s a misdemeanor, longer if it’s a felony. If a defendant makes unwanted contact with the victim after the temporary restraining order expires their activities could be reported to the police  in Tampa, and they could be charged with the crime of stalking. Voice mail messages, e-mails, letters, floral bouquets, notes on cars, visits to the victim’s workplace, can all be used in evidence in a stalking prosecution in Tampa Florida.

  1. Restraining orders are just the court initiative to refrain one from another. this is not only for security purpose but also for making on another secure of or inhibiting from violating ones right. Prohibition of oneself and respect of the law is highly needed on this case.

    Hi Chris,

    Here's an update and some very good information about mutual no contact orders. Either party can petition to have them extended, which I did. Andras was so outraged, he threw together a last minute motion against Renae and I, and filed it with the court. The judge extended the no contact order for a month, until he could sort through the motion Andras file, which was, of course all lies and b.s.

    Here's what we already knew, but several attorneys told us we were wrong, and had violated the order, so we told them to shove it.
    1. A mutual no contact order is just that. If you run into each other in public, no one has to leave, simply don't speak to each other.
    2. Blogging, or making statements about the other party, is not a violation. Since your facebook or blog, has to be actively accessed, the supreme court upholds your right to free speech.

    Check out my latest post, for the ridiculous accusations that were made against us. I'll post the audio once it's ready. The judge handed Andras his ass, and I think, lead him down the path to perjure himself, which he did.

    I gave out your blog url to all the men waiting to go into family court. Keep up the good work.

  5. I forgot to tell you that Andras challenged the judge's ruling at the 2nd hearing. Being an ex-marine, he pointed his finger and screamed at him, it was too funny.

    There was a dad waiting to go into his hearing, because the mom had accused him of violating the tro, by writing "Happy Birthday Jamie" on HIS own, facebook wall. He wasn't supposed to have contact with his ex or the kids.

    The judge threw it out, because it was HIS website, that would have to be actively accessed. Boy was she pissed. She made such a scene the deputy had to escort her out of the courthouse, quickly. I know this happens to men all the time, so I hope this info is helpful.

  7. I have some tips for dealing with tro's, and mutual no contact orders on my site. Here's the best advice anyone shared with me. Of course, since I lived over 150 miles from my petitioner, this was more beneficial to me. The DAY, your tro or mutual no contact order starts, keep a daily journal of your whereabouts. Make sure to include any friends you were with, and approximate hour of day. Keep a running print out of your work hours. If you belong to a gym, usually they can give you a print out of the dates and times you visited. Don't pay cash for anything. KEEP EVERY RECEIPT! It's one of the best alibis. If your petitioner lied and abused the court to get you there in the first place, they will not hesitate, to abuse the order. You MUST be on the defensive 24/7, so if your petitioner tries to ambush you, you're prepared.

  8. Good Restraining Order advice Paula!
    People lie in court all the time to get restraining orders in Tampa. Once they get a restraining order by lying, they will not hesitate to lie some more to the judge and police to have your arrested.

  9. Thanks for posting this article! Restraining orders definitely serve an important purpose, but like most things they can be taken advantage of.

  10. I was able to channel my anger and frustration, by creating a similar blog. The biggest difference is, I poked fun at the county, the judge, law enforcement, and most of all, my petitioner and his "witnesses". I was issued apologies by nearly all of the witnesses, and 2 of them wrote the judge, saying that they didn't have all the facts, and did not want to be subpoenaed, should our case go any further. Ha! I loved it!
