Seminole County Domestic Violence Release Conditions

When the court in Seminole County, Florida sets the conditions of release at the initial appearance hearing these conditions of release will exist until the case is over not just until the next court date.  Many people arrested for a domestic violence charge or charges in Seminole County believe that they can get the no contact with the victim, no return to the residence of the victim and electronic monitor conditions of release modified at the next court date after the initial appearance hearing which is normally the arraignment hearing.

The judge for the arraignment hearing in Seminole County is not going to stop in the middle of the arraignments and discuss with the arrested person why the conditions of release in the case should be modified.  That case is not the only case set for an arraignment hearing on that date so the judge normally has many cases to do arraignments for and does have time to stop and deal with release condition modifications.  Also, the victim is normally not present at the arraignment haring for the judge to take testimony to determine what conditions of release the victim feels are necessary for their protection from the arrested person.

Seminole County judges do not discuss release conditions at arraignment hearings and if you try to do that the judge will instruct you that your arraignment hearing is not the correct hearing to discuss modification of your release conditions.  If you would like to discuss how I can help, the consultation is free.  Please call me at 407-740-8300, text me at 407-616-8808 or email me at
