Life is precious. Living that life should be enjoyed without fear – especially in one’s own home. Often the most serious dangers can be the ones that are most difficult to deal with. To help protect people who are simply trying to live their life free from harm, Pennsylvania has established the Protection from Abuse Act. It is possible to secure protection with a PFA (Protection from Abuse) Order without hiring an attorney. However, because of the legalities, stress, and fear involved with having to seek protection from someone familiar, legal representation is the wisest and safest choice for a client. Attorney Jack A. Rounick delivers service with compassion to assist victims of domestic violence to secure this legal means of protection efficiently.
Available to both male and female victims, a PFA Order requires an abuser to remove themselves from the abused party’s residence no matter in whose name it might be. Under an active PFA Order, the victim is protected from the presence of the abuser and given the means to live life in a more normal manner, without having to hide or leave one’s familiar and stable network of support. There are procedures in place to provide this protection should the need arise; including emergency and temporary orders should they be required until a scheduled court hearing can occur. An abuse victim is generally not in the condition to argue for their own protection against their attacker in court. This is when an experienced and respected attorney will plead your case and help you get the protection you deserve.
If you are in fear from a family member or of someone in your household, do not delay in seeking help. Do not make excuses and continue living in fear of bodily harm that may be inflicted upon you or your children. This law is designed to cover the provisions that you and those closest to you will need, as far as shelter, finances, expenses, protection, and anything else you feel the need to request.
