Affirmative Injunction Law & Legal Definition

Affirmative injunction refers to an injunction that requires a positive act on the part of the defendant. Outside divorce, most injunctions are negative. Injunction is an equitable remedy in the form of a court order compelling a party to do or refrain from doing a specified act. Generally, an injunction is available as a remedy for harm for which there is no adequate remedy at law. Affirmative injunctions are more common in divorce cases especially since they relate to minor children, often covering to visitation.
