Thank you

The injunction protects you in case that individual tries to contact you or physically come near you, the injunction makes that contact a criminal activity for which that person can be arrested.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

If it is filed in Florida, how does that keep someone in Colorado from contacting me? Colorado won't arrest for Florida, right?

That's right. It's more so for the case of physically coming near you or your place of work or residence in Florida.

Of if this person comes back to Florida and is making any threats or harassing calls, etc.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you still have any questions about this.

Don't forget to rate so I can be credited for my time and help with your question, thanks!
