From the Orange County Clerk of Court’s Office
In recognition of October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Orange County Clerk of Courts Tiffany Moore Russell reminds the community that the Clerk’s 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 Thursday, 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 the Mental Health Association of Central Florida
- Self-defense class conducted by the 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. For more information about the services the Clerk’s Office provides related to domestic violence, and to register for the event, please visit our website www.myorangeclerk.com.
