Injunctions

Definition:

A court order prohibiting certain activity.

Injunctions prohibit certain activities. Injunctions which require certain activity are called affirmative injunctions. Outside divorce, most injunctions are negative in nature. Affirmative injunctions are more common in divorce cases especially since they relate to minor children, often covering to visitation. Property-related injunctions are also common, usually restricting the sale or transfer of property, borrowing,and spending on non-necessities.
