Philadelphia Restraining Orders Lawyers

One of the most common ways to protect yourself from an abuser is to seek protection through a restraining order. Known in Pennsylvania as a protection from abuse order, it is a legal document that orders an abuser to have no contact with a victim.

At Testa & Pagnanelli, LLC, in Philadelphia and Norristown, our restraining orders attorneys know the processes involved with seeking a protection from abuse order and can help domestic violence victims get the quick protection they need from an abuser.

What Protections Does A Restraining Order Provide?

A protection from abuse order can provide numerous protections, but it is up to a judge to determine which yours will include. A restraining order can:

  • Order the abuser not to harass, stalk or abuse you, your children or your relatives
  • Order the abuser to turn over any weapons he or she has to local police
  • Order the abuser to stay away from and have no contact with your children
  • Order the abuser to leave the home you share, even if he or she owns it
  • Order the abuser to pay for expenses resulting from the abuse, including medical bills, new housing, attorney fees and expenses related to your children
