When should this form be used?
You should use this form if you want the court to enter an order that your minor child(ren) is (are) not to be removed from the State of Florida while a case involving parenting or time-sharing is pending, that passport services for the minor child(ren) be prohibited, and/or that existing passports be turned over to you. This form should be typed or printed in black ink. If you want the court to enter an ex parte order, without giving the other side advance notice of the hearing, you should explain your reasons in paragraph 5 of this form. After completing this form, you should sign the form before a notary public. You should file the original with the clerk of the circuit court in the county where your case is pending and keep a copy for your records. You should also ask the clerk to process your motion though their emergency procedures.

What should I do next?
If the court enters an order without advance notice to the other party, you should take a certified copy of the order to the sheriff's office for further assistance. You must have this form and the court's order, served by personal service on the other party. You should read the court's order carefully. Look for directions in the order that apply to you and note the time and place of the hearing scheduled in the order. You should go to the hearing with whatever evidence you have regarding your motion. If the court will not enter an order without advance notice to the other side, you should check with the clerk of court, family law intake staff, or judicial assistant for information on the local procedure for scheduling a hearing on your motion, unless the court sets a hearing in its order denying your request for an ex parte hearing. When you know the date and time of your hearing, you should file Notice of Hearing (General), Florida Supreme Court Approved Family Law Form 12.923 or other appropriate notice of hearing form, and use personal service to notify the other party of your motion, the court's order, if any, and the hearing.

Where can I look for more information?
Before proceeding, you should read "General Information for Self-Represented Litigants" found at the beginning of these forms. For further information, see chapter 61, Florida Statutes, and rule 1.610, Florida Rules of Civil Procedure.

Special notes...
If you have an attorney, your attorney must certify in writing the efforts that have been made to give the other party notice, if no notice is given. The court may require you to post a bond as a condition of the injunction. With this form you must also file the following, if you have not already done so, and provide a copy to the other party: Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) Affidavit, Florida Supreme Court Approved Family Law Form 12.902(d).

Temporary Injunctions... These family law forms contain a Temporary Injunction to Prevent Removal of Minor Child(ren) and/or Denial of Passport Services (Ex Parte), Florida Supreme Court Approved Family Law Form 12.941(b), which the judge may use if he or she enters an order without a hearing, and a Temporary Injunction to Prevent Removal of Minor Child(ren) and/or Denial of Passport Services (After Notice), Florida Supreme Court Approved Family Law Form 12.941(c), which the judge may use if he or she enters an order after a hearing. You should check with the clerk, family law intake staff, or judicial assistant to see if you need to bring a blank order form with you to the hearing. If so, you should type or print the heading, including the circuit, county, case number, division, and the parties' names, and leave the rest blank for the judge to complete at your hearing. Remember, a person who is NOT an attorney is called a nonlawyer. If a nonlawyer helps you fill out these forms, that person must give you a copy of Disclosure from Nonlawyer, Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure Form 12.900 (a), before he or she helps you. A nonlawyer helping you fill out these forms also must put his or her name, address, and telephone number on the bottom of the last page of every form he or she helps you complete.
