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 "Clerks Against Domestic Violence" Workshop in partnership with Harbor House of Central Florida, the Mental Health Association of Central Florida, and the Orlando Police Department on October 25, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Marks Street Senior Center at 99 E Marks Street, Orlando, FL 32803.

This workshop will feature topics such as:

  • How to File a Restraining Order
  • Guidance from Harbor House of Central Florida
  • Reflections of Trauma presented by Mental Health Association of Central Florida
  • Self-defense class conducted by Orlando Police Department.

To register, call 407-836-6335 or visit our registration page.

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. 

Clerk of Courts Tiffany Moore Russell serves on both the Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Commission and the Domestic Violence Taskforce where she works with fellow justice partners and community leaders on ways to identify trends and reduce the incidence of domestic violence in the community. 

Domestic violence not only affects victims, but also family and friends. For more information on the services the Clerk’s Office provides related to domestic violence, click here.
