Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers Recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Florida’s Clerks of Court and Comptrollers support individuals facing domestic violence with essential services including domestic violence injunctions

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— Each year, Clerks of Court help tens of thousands of vulnerable individuals suffering from harmful relationships or threatening behavior from strangers apply for protective injunctions with the help of compassionate professionals. In observance of October as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers (FCCC) is recognizing survivors of domestic violence and highlighting services provided by Clerks of Court to assist those facing domestic violence issues.

“If you are in immediate danger of domestic violence, call 9-1-1,” said FCCC President and Martin County Clerk of Court and Comptroller Carolyn Timmann. “One of our most solemn duties as Clerks of Court is the urgent processing of protective injunctions for individuals seeking protection from domestic violence. If you or anyone you know needs assistance with a domestic violence injunction or restraining order, please contact your local Clerk’s office, so we can provide guidance and help process your application. These services are available year-round at no cost to the filer.”

“Every victim and survivor of domestic violence shares a story of heartbreak, and everyone deserves to live a life free from abuse, harassment, and violence,” said Chris Hart IV, Chief Executive Officer of Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers. “As we recognize Domestic Violence Awareness month this October, FCCC wants anyone suffering from domestic violence to know that Clerks of Court in Florida are committed to making their essential, protective services accessible whenever they’re needed, and they are there to help you navigate the process.”

Florida’s Clerks of Court receive and process domestic violence injunctions, or restraining orders, and these essential services are available at no cost to recipients of the service. Clerks of Courts are dedicated to ensuring their availability at courthouse locations and annexes. Anyone with questions about the process or who is considering filing an injunction should contact their local Clerk of Court’s office in their county for specific information.

In 2021, Clerks throughout the state processed 78,302 applications for protective injunctions that help those impacted by domestic violence and other vulnerable populations.

If you or someone you know is currently experiencing domestic violence, know the important steps you can take:

If you are in immediate danger, always call 9-1-1 for assistance from law enforcement.
Contact your local Clerk’s office to start the process to file for an injunction or restraining order.
Use the Florida Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-500-1119 for support, advocacy and assistance finding shelter.
