Fighting Domestic Abuse And Abuses Of The System

If you are being abused, harassed or stalked, a Protection from Abuse Order (PFA) can prevent that person from having further contact with you. On the other hand, if you have been named in a PFA based on false accusations, where can you turn to clear your name?

Goldman Law Offices represents victims of domestic violence as well as those unfairly accused. We handle these sensitive issues with the utmost care and respect as we seek to protect your legal rights, safety and peace of mind.

Behaviors That Warrant Protection From Abuse

PFAs are very powerful tools. Once issued, the person named in the order can be ousted from the home, deprived of possessions and prevented from having contact with his or her children. Over the years, our Doylestown attorneys have handled domestic abuse situations involving husbands and wives, domestic partners, former spouses, immediate family members and more.

Some examples of types of behaviors that can lead to the issuance of a PFA include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Stalking
  • Threats of bodily harm
  • Physically restraining someone

False Accusations And Baseless Restraining Orders

Unfortunately, it is not unheard of for people to fabricate stories of domestic violence, often in order to get an upper hand in a divorce case. Our lawyers are aggressive in defending those falsely accused of domestic or child abuse. If you find yourself in this situation, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our office to learn about your rights.
