A Protection From Abuse (PFA) Order is granted based on allegations of abusive contact. This includes physical abuse, sexual abuse, threats of abuse, harassment, and stalking.
Once a PFA Order becomes effective, it prohibits all contact with the alleged victim.
Even non-abusive contact is strictly forbidden.
People are commonly arrested for violating PFAs by simply texting them a message that is well-intended and non-threatening.
But even a non-threatening, technical violation of a PFA may result in your arrest.
