Pennsylvania Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer
Police are strict about enforcing domestic violence laws. The case will not be dismissed – even if the victim says he or she does not want to press charges. Penalties upon conviction can be serious as many prosecutors will seek jail time, even for a first offense.

If you have been issued a restraining order or an order of protection (also known as a PFA or protection from abuse order), you may have to move out of your own home. You will not be able to contact the victim. And, if you and the victim have any children together, you may be unable to see your children.
