Today I represented a client seeking a Protection from Abuse order against her daughter on behalf of her minor granddaughter. My client felt that her daughter posed a danger to the grandchild due to her issues with substance abuse. Fortunately, the PFA act can provide for protection in this regard.
My client was able to secure a one year Protection From Abuse order. As part of the order she was able to obtain custody of the minor child. The mother will be permitted contact with the child, but only at the discretion of my client. The mother will face violation of the order and possible jail time if she fails to follow its terms. The hope, of course, is that the child is protected and the mother gets the help she needs.
