Today I represented a plaintiff in a Protection From Abuse Case in Reading, PA. My client alleged that his spouse had threatened him with physical harm on numerous occasions and consequently he feared for his safety. His spouse denied the allegations and the matter proceeded to a Hearing.
Ultimately, there was a finding of abuse and a 2 year PFA order was granted. My client can rest assured that if his estranged spouse contacts or attempts to continue her threats in any way over the next 2 years, then she will be arrested.
The PFA act in Pennsylvania provides protection for victims of abuse and domestic violence. It applies equally to both men and women, children and adults. If you or a loved one is seeking legal advice regarding a PFA in Berks County please call our office for a free consultation.
