The state of Florida aims to keep residents safe. If someone poses a threat to an individual, no contact orders can prevent further abuse or harassment. Even if a person has not caused physical harm to a victim, the law enforces these orders, and violating one can result in criminal consequences.
In this day and age, it is not uncommon for people to use some form of social media on a daily basis. Florida has laws in place to combat cyber stalking and other forms of harassment online, but the laws regarding social media posts are a bit unclear. Recently, a woman was able to get a no contact order against a man who was harassing her under the guise of protest.
Florida parents know how difficult it can be to find a reliable person to watch children while a parent is at work. Summer vacation has begun for children, but many parents must adhere to a regular work schedule to keep a job and pay the bills. Trusting a sitter or daycare with a child can be a difficult decision. When a child is harmed by an employee who was entrusted with the child's care, parents may want to look into no contact orders.
Florida residents may have seen the recent news stories surrounding yet another reality television star. "Mama" June Shannon, (made famous alongside former toddler beauty pageant queen daughter Alana, known and beloved the world over by her stage name, Honey BooBoo), recently found herself making headlines, and not for a good reason. Several weeks ago, Shannon and her boyfriend were arrested on various charges, and because domestic violence was suspected between the pair, no contact orders were put in place.
Florida residents may have personal experience, or perhaps a close friend who has experienced the sort of stress that can arise when a younger family member is struggling with serious issues. Many find it difficult to draw the line, admitting that, despite his or her unconditional love, he or she can do nothing to help the troubled person. On some occasions, a family member may strike out in anger, and though people want to help, they may obtain no contact orders for personal safety.
Florida residents may be able to recall a time in life in which they had cause to fear another person. If someone has been abused, harassed or otherwise harmed by an individual, he or she may want to look into no contact orders. A no contact order is a legal document signed by a judge and enforceable by law, preventing an aggressor from having any further communication with a victim.
Florida residents may be able to relate to situations in which a specific person makes them feel threatened. In many cases, these people choose to seek no contact orders. This type of court order prohibits a person from making contact with a person or family, and usually also prevents them from entering the property where the victim lives..
