Protection From Abuse Contempt

Your relationship is over.  It ended badly and you know it.  You just want to be done with it and move on with your life.  Unfortunately, your ex has a PFA against you.  Whether you agreed to it just to move past it, you failed to appear for the hearing or a judge ordered it against you, you are now subject to a powerful court order.  

The only notice of the violation may be the police knocking on your door to arrest you.  

While a civil order, Protections from Abuse carry with them contempt power.  What this means is that if you are accused of a violation you could be looking at a sentence of up to six months in jail.  You need an experienced Chester County defense attorney to protect your rights.  You will be given a hearing in front of a Chester County Common Pleas judge where the accuser will be represented by a seasoned assistant district attorney.  You need someone who has experience in challenging these cases and working with the District Attorney's Office.
