An injunction was entered against me. What does it mean?

If an injunction was issued against you, it means you can’t have contact with a certain person or a group. So, when an injunction is issued by a court, it prohibits you from having any contact with that other party. You need to stay clear of that person. Please be advised this also means third party contact. You cannot call somebody and have them call that individual. It is as simple as it sounds – stay away from that person.

In cases of domestic violence, an injunction acts as a safeguard, prohibiting any form of communication or interaction, directly or indirectly, between the restrained individual and the protected party. Violating the terms of the injunction, even through indirect contact, could lead to legal consequences, including potential arrest.

However, it’s essential to note that an injunction is not necessarily a permanent restriction. There is typically a subsequent hearing where the restrained individual has an opportunity to present their perspective before the court. At this hearing, the judge may consider lifting or modifying the injunction based on the presented arguments and evidence. It’s crucial to adhere strictly to the terms of the injunction until the court modifies or lifts it officially.

In essence, an injunction serves as a temporary measure aimed at preserving safety and preventing further conflict, with the possibility of reassessment based on legal proceedings and provided evidence during subsequent hearings.
