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, they will be hosting a virtual Clerks Against Domestic Violence Workshop in partnership with Harbor House of Central Florida, the Victim Service Center, and the Orlando Police Department, on October 26, 2021 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. live on the Zoom platform.

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 safety of individuals seeking protection from domestic violence will always be a top priority for my office,” said Clerk Russell.
The Orange County Clerk of Courts is an advocate for putting an end to the violence. Their Family Services Injunction team helps those affected by domestic, repeat, sexual, dating, and stalking violence obtain restraining orders for protection which are available year-round at no cost.
Domestic violence not only affects victims but also family and friends. To register for the webinar, please go to the Clerks Against Domestic Violence Webinar page.
