...to cause problems AFTER she was served the stalking injunction. Will the state attorney likely view this as a violation of injunction? (in Florida)
answered on Mar 14, 2023
If the injunction prohibits "stalking", probably not. Florida Statute 784.048 (2) defines stalking as follows: "A person who willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly follows, harasses, or cyberstalks another person commits the offense of stalking, a misdemeanor of the first degree,... Read more »

The advice that you need is obtained by scheduling a consultation with a probate attorney. If you have inheritance rights that are being disregarded, you may contest the probate case. Act quickly.

You actually raise a couple different issues here. 1. Can Court documents available on PACER lawfully be disclosed on social media?

I was off site at the time of the incident, so I don't know what was said. My employer has also not given a reason for termination. What kind of lawyer would I need to find out what happened?
