Who Can an Injunction Be Filed Against?

A domestic violence injunction can be filed against someone who has lived with you or is living with you. These injunctions are usually filed against relatives by blood or marriage but can be filed against non-family members as well.

An injunction can be filed against the following:

  • Spouses
  • Ex-spouses
  • Parents
  • Grandparents
  • Aunts
  • Uncles
  • Cousins
  • Step-parents
  • Step-children
  • Significant others

You may be able to file an injunction against other individuals as well. Speak with our lawyer to learn more about your options.

Should I Get a Domestic Violence Injunction?

First, you should understand that once you accuse someone of domestic violence, you cannot change your mind and take that accusation back. Due process will have to take place. If you are being abused or feel endangered by someone else, a domestic violence injunction can provide protection and peace of mind for you and your loved ones.

A domestic violence injunction can accomplish the following:

  • Prevent the accused from continuing to abuse you
  • Allow you exclusive residence in your home (temporarily)
  • Enable you to re-evaluate timesharing or support if necessary
  • Request that the accused participate in an intervention course
  • Requests that the accused give up all weapons to law enforcement
