Join Us for Virtual Clerks Against Domestic Violence Workshop

Providing Hope for Domestic Violence Survivors Every Day

In recognition of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Orange County Clerk of Courts reminds the community our office is a local resource for those affected directly and indirectly by domestic violence. As part of this, we will be hosting a special virtual "Clerks Against Domestic Violence Workshop" on Thursday, October 29th from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. live on Zoom. We have  partnered with the Orlando Police Department, Harbor House of Central Florida, and Victim Service Center to bring awareness and valuable information to Orange County residents.

This workshop will feature topics such as:

  • How to File a Restraining Order
  • Guidance from Harbor House of Central Florida
  • Information about stalking and cyberstalking from Victim Service Center
  • Self-defense class conducted by Orlando Police Department.

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner. 

The Orange County Clerk of Courts is an advocate for putting an end to the violence. Our Family Services Injunction team helps those affected by domestic, repeat, sexual, dating, and stalking violence obtain restraining orders for protection. Domestic violence not only affects victims, but also family and friends.
