The Protectionf From Abuse Act

The Pennsylvania Protection from Abuse Act was written for the purpose of protecting victims of domestic violence. Guidelines have been set forth that forbid individuals from continuing with their abusive activities, thus protecting the victim. PFA orders can be issued if the abuser is the victim's:

  • Current or former spouse

  • Current or former sexual partner

  • Common-law spouse

  • Child

  • Parent

  • Child's parent

  • Blood relative

  • Relative by marriage

You can obtain an emergency order issued by a magisterial district judge if protection is an immediate need. Temporary protection from abuse orders can be obtained to protect the victim until a hearing is held. Final orders are used to place specific restrictions on the abuser and can be granted for up to three years.
