Protecting victims of domestic violence in Pennsylvania


Domestic problems are common between family members, same-sex couples, former spouses, married couples and anyone in an intimate relationship. Such issues can start with a disagreement over any issue, resulting in physical violence and other abuse. The abuse may occur once or repeatedly, endangering the lives of the victim and compromising the safety of children around. Pennsylvania readers need to understand that domestic violence will continue unless the victim proceeds with appropriate action.

Our law firm understands how difficult it is to be involved in a domestic violence. Most domestic violence victims are afraid of retaliation and choose to remain silent. When domestic violence victims step inside our offices, we make sure they understand that abuse must stop, and show them how.

There are laws that protect victims from abuse. We have helped many individuals explore their legal rights to keep abusers at bay. Readers suffering from domestic violence should report the incident to authorities. Once they have reported the incident, our team of legal professionals will handle the rest.

One of the many options we recommend to our clients is to file a restraining order, which can be temporary or permanent, depending on the circumstances. Restraining orders can prevent the abuser from approaching the victim and cause further harm. The restraining order can also prevent the abuser from seeing children. It is important to note that domestic violence also affect custody issues. If the other person is being accused of domestic violence, that person may lose custody and visitation rights.
