Philadelphia Protection from Abuse Orders Attorney
Pennsylvania law allows people who have been abused or are under imminent threat of being abused to obtain protection from abuse (PFA) orders. When a judge issues a temporary PFA, oftentimes the person accused of domestic violence must leave the home immediately and have no contact with the alleged victim. At a later hearing the judge will hear both sides of the case to determine if a final order should be extended. Final orders can be put into place for up to three years.
At the Law Office of Smith & Horwitz, we handle a wide range of domestic violence issues, including establishing and defending against protection from abuse orders. Focused exclusively on family law for more than 35 years, we are prepared to stand up for your rights.
