Understanding Protection From Abuse And Restraining Orders

If you are facing a domestic violence situation, you should understand how protection from abuse (PFA) and restraining orders work in Pennsylvania. At The Law Office of Angela Flouras Rieck, I am here to help, whether you are requesting the protection order or are defending against it.

In Pennsylvania, a PFA can provide protection for you for up to three years. Once a court issues a PFA, the abuser is not allowed to contact you. This is one way for you to protect yourself and your children. An attorney who works with PFAs and understands the system of issuance can help you seek support and guidance through your stressful and scary situation.

I am attorney Angela Flouras Rieck, and I will explain to you how PFAs work. PFAs are serious, and you need to have an experienced attorney to ensure that you and your rights are protected. The entry of a PFA order can have an extraordinary impact on a divorce or child custody action, and understanding how these issues intersect is important. Also, violating a PFA can result in considerable fines or up to six months in prison. I have the experience in PFA proceedings that you need, and I can help you get through this incredibly difficult and scary process.
