Getting an Injunction

An Injunction is a court order to stop the abuser from beating, hurting, or threatening you. You do NOT need a lawyer to get this court order, but you may use a lawyer.

The Clerk of the Court is required to help you seek an Injunction for Protection and enforcement of violation of an Injunction. You may also ask the State Attorney to file a criminal complaint.

For assistance in obtaining an Injunction here in St. Johns County please call our Court Advocates at 904-827-5633.

Keep your copy of the Injunction with you at all times.

You can also download the forms you need:

What do I do if the Abuser Violates the Injunction?

  • The abuser may be arrested.
  • If the abuser is arrested, he/she will be held until the court determines bail.
  • The judge will consider your safety and the safety of your children.
  • You may go to court if you wish.
  • The court may order penalties as allowed by law.

Where Can I Go If I Leave?
The Betty Griffin House offers emergency safe shelter and counseling for abused women and their children. If you need to get away from the abuser and you have no friends or relatives with whom you can stay, contact Betty Griffin House at 904/824-1555.
