PROTECTION FROM ABUSE (PFA)
Have you or your child been subjected to abuse by a spouse, household member, or intimate partner? Have you been named as a defendant for committing an alleged abuse against a spouse, household member, or intimate partner? PFAs can be used as swords and shields. At AMS Law, we handle both sides of the issue.
PFAs can have severe consequences for both plaintiffs and defendants. For a plaintiff, having a PFA can mean peace and safety. For a wrongfully accused defendant, a final PFA order can have devastating effects on employment, community reputation, and rights. We are a firm that understands how to navigate the PFA process from filing, final hearings, and violations for contempt. We handle your matter with care for you, and aggressive representation in the courtroom.
