    Default Emergency Domestic Violence Injunction

    My question involves court procedures for the state of: FL

    How does one file an emergency injunction to get someone out of a home in Florida?
    Can this be done to landlord who lives in the same dwelling as a tenant or family member?
    Does this injunction begin immediately within hours of filing?

    What then happens and how long does the temporary injunction last before the permanent one, and does the temporary injunction last up until the court hearing date for determination of the permanent one?

    The specific facts involved. Without those, no one here will bother with a response. Good legal assistance is based on specific facts, not hypothetical situations.

    If you are talking about a protective order, read this.

    If you are a landlord and simply want to evict a tenant, you need to go through the eviction procedure.

    The rest depends on the facts.

    By bringing a motion before the court - preferably with the assistance of a victim advocate (contact your local domestic violence program).


    Can this be done to landlord who lives in the same dwelling as a tenant or family member?
    Under the same roof, in the same living area, probably. If in the other half of a duplex or another separate living unit of a building, no. Then it's an eviction that the landlord needs to follow.


    Does this injunction begin immediately within hours of filing?
    It becomes active once it's served on the person by law enforcement. Could take hours, could take days - or much longer if the subject of the order purposefully attempts to evade service.


    What then happens and how long does the temporary injunction last before the permanent one, and does the temporary injunction last up until the court hearing date for determination of the permanent one?
    The temp lasts until the hearing occurs - at which point the court will either drop it or make it permanent.
