On December 22, 2008, the Sammis Law Firm represented a Tampa man whose wife had filed a Temporary Injunction for Protection Against Domestic Violence with Children (restraining order) against him in Hillsborough County, Florida. The hearing was scheduled for December 22, 2008 in front of the Honorable Raul Palomino, Circuit County Judge, George E. Edgecomb Courthouse, 800 East Twiggs St. The wife was represented by an attorney and testified that she wanted to go forward with obtaining a restraining order against her husband to prevent him from returning to his home or seeing his child except during "supervised visitation." During the hearing on cross-examination the wife admitted that after she filed the temporary restraining order she contacted her husband by phone and also by going to his parents house to see him.
The Court found her allegations about domestic violence in the home insufficient to continue the injunction and dismissed her case against her husband on December 22, 2008.
If you are the respondent who has been served with a Florida Temporary Injunction for Protection Against Domestic Violence, contact an experienced domestic violence attorney in Tampa, Florida to represent you for any case pending in Hillsborough County. Restraining orders are serious legal remedies that can have serious collateral consequences, including impacting your future employment opportunities and causing you to lose certain civil rights, including the right to carry a firearm.
