Pittsburgh PFA Victims Lawyers
A PFA restraining order provides important legal protections for victims of domestic abuse.
A PFA can prevent an abuser from having any contact with his or her victim.
This includes physical and non-physical contact such as phone calls, emails, and texts.
A defendant who violates a PFA may face criminal charges. Penalties include a six-month jail sentence and a $1,000 fine.
In Pennsylvania, you may be entitled to the legal protections of a PFA if a current or former partner or family relation has engaged in any of the following behavior against you or your child:
- Physical harm
- Threats of physical harm
- Sexual harm
- False imprisonment
