Each case is different, and each family is different. Lawyers at our firm help clients obtain protection from abuse orders, and we also defend against them, depending on the situation.
A protection from abuse (PFA) order is a civil order that provides protection from harm by family or household members, sexual or intimate partners or people who have a child in common. It may be possible to obtain an emergency order or an ex parte temporary PFA, as well as a final PFA that lasts up to three years.
