PFA Lawyer Helping Victims of Abuse
A PFA restraining order provides important legal protections for victims of domestic violence. It 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 person who violates a PFA Restraining Order 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
