Your Safety Matters Most
When you’re a victim of domestic violence, you might think that you don’t have a way out, but that is not true. You can secure the help you need to get to safety. You can protect yourself and those that matter to you with the right support.
As a family law and divorce attorney, Alexandria “Ally” Crouthamel has built her career around confronting the threats her clients face. She works with people from the following Pennsylvania counties to get the protection they deserve under the law: Carbon, Monroe, Lehigh, Schuylkill, Delaware, Montgomery, Chester, Berks, and Bucks.
What Does A Protection From Abuse Order Do?
Very basically, a Protection From Abuse order (PFA) – or a restraining order, as it is often called – makes it a crime for your abuser to harass you in any way. Additionally, it will:
- Require your abuser to move out of your home
- Temporarily award you with full custody of any children
- Order your abuser to pay you support
- Force your abuser to relinquish firearms
- Prohibit contact between your abuser and any children
Additionally, a PFA may grant other accommodations that the court deems “reasonable.”
These cases are extremely sensitive and demanding. A PFA is a strong legal tool at your disposal, and because of that, it demands the attention of an attorney to file properly.
