It is an unfortunate fact that domestic violence is still a problem here in Pennsylvania and across the country. However, that does not change the fact that many people also use false allegations of domestic violence to gain an advantage in family law and other disputes.
These people use a tool known in Pennsylvania as the Protection From Abuse (PFA) order. At the Quinn Law Firm, our criminal defense attorneys understand the devastating effect a PFA order can have on your life. We can help you find the best resolution that discretely protects your reputation, record and freedom.
You Must Take A PFA Order Seriously
Even if the allegations against you are false, it’s important to treat this matter with the seriousness that you would treat any other criminal charge. A PFA order could mean that:
- You cannot live in your own home
- You cannot see your own children
- It will be harder to keep or find a job
- You end up spending time in jail if you violate the order
Many people think there is nothing they can do to fight a PFA order. Our lawyers have successfully helped clients have PFA orders dismissed and limited their durations so they do not place overly harsh burdens on their lives.
