Protection From Abuse (PFA) Criminal Defense in Easton, Bethlehem, and Allentown.

A P.F.A order is essentially a restraining order preventing one person from having any contact – direct or indirect – with another. Restraining orders are issued in all Pennsylvania domestic violence cases, although they are sometimes modified or vacated by the court following the motion of one or both parties. Also, individuals may obtain a civil protection order, which starts off as a temporary order and can become a permanent protection order if the petitioner so chooses and either the respondent does not object, does not appear in court at the permanent restraining order hearing, or appears and is unsuccessful at the permanent restraining order hearing. Oftentimes, alleged victims in pending criminal matters also seek a P.F.A against the defendant, in addition to any restraining order already imposed in the criminal case.
