Fighting a Restraining Order
Serving Bucks County, Lehigh County, Montgomery County and Philadelphia
Criminal Defense Lawyers In Pennsylvania
Protection from abuse orders are a serious matter in Pennsylvania. If an order is entered, you may be removed from your home for up to three years. You may be ordered not to contact the alleged victim in person, by phone, by email or by any other means. If you contact the person who is protected by the order in any way, you may be charged with an assault crime, even if the person specifically requested to speak with you or contact you.
In short, you are at the mercy of the alleged victim once a protection from abuse order is entered. The party that is protected by the order can lure you into making contact with him or her with the intent of having you arrested. He or she can make false allegations against you, and his or her allegation alone may be enough – without any substantiation – to have you hauled off to jail.
