In Allegheny County, dozens of Final PFA hearings are scheduled every day. But judges actually hear only a handful of cases.
That’s because most PFA matters get resolved out of court through settlement by the parties’ attorneys.
In Allegheny County, there are many ways to settle a PFA matter without need for a court hearing, including:
-Withdraw the Temporary PFA
-Replace the Temporary PFA with an agreement to have no contact that also may address issues of child custody and housing
-Continue the Temporary PFA for a period of time set to expire
-Consent to a Final PFA without admitting to the allegations of abuse
-Consent to a Final PFA for a duration less than the three-year maximum
