Domestic violence and sexual assault accusations are not limited to criminal charges. Pennsylvania law permits courts to issue different kinds of restraining orders against those accused of domestic violence and sexual assault. Protection from Abuse orders, or PFA’s for short, are civil restraining orders that can severely limit your freedom by evicting you from your home, ordering your firearms to be seized, and even depriving you of custody of your children. Sexual Violence Protective Orders, or SVPOs for short, can also contain similar restrictions on your liberty. A protection order can even last up to 3 years and may be extended depending on the circumstances. Click here to learn more about how a PFA or other protection order can impact your life.
