PFA Consequences

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.
