24-Hour Call (305) 349-5888.

Overview of Dade County domestic violence procedure: You must first obtain a temporary injunction, which is an order signed by a judge. Dade county has 4 domestic violence intake offices. At the time of filing for the temporary injunction, there will be domestic violence counselors to answer your questions.The order requires that the abuser stay away from you and your family and your job. This order can give you possession of your home, award you child custody and child support and you can begin divorce proceedings. You may also file for divorce separately and the domestic violence case and the divorce will be joined. If you have no money, the filing fee will be waived at that time or the judge may decide that the abuser must pay the fee. In case you or your children are in danger of being further bodily harmed or stalked, the judge will allow you and your children to stay at a safe house at an address unknown to the abuser. This person will be required to give up any firearms or weapons in his possession, give up keys, gate openers and security cards, and the abuser will be arrested in the event of violation of the judge’s order. A hearing will be set for entry of a permanent injunction which will last as long as the judge determines, but a year at the least. The abuser must attend an anger management and batterer’s intervention program, and the victim and children can receive counseling at no cost.
