Because courts overwhelmingly grant Protection From Abuse (PFA) orders, the system itself is frequently abused by people seeking leverage in divorce and child-custody actions.
In fact, the mere accusation of abuse can devastate a person’s life and reputation.
In Pennsylvania, a PFA can:
- Evict you from your home;
- Take away your firearms;
- Appear on your permanent record;
- Prevent you from seeing your children; and
- Result in serious criminal charges.
