Obtaining or Defending Against PFAs – Proven Family Law Representation

Need to seek protection from abuse (PFA) order against a person who has abused or threatened you
Are facing false or exaggerated allegations that may lead to or have resulted in a PFA
Are engaged in a contentious divorce or child custody dispute in which domestic abuse or allegations of criminal behavior are involved
Domestic abuse is a serious issue in Pennsylvania and strict laws are in place to protect victims and prevent avoidable tragedies.
To work with an attorney who will hear you out and offer sound guidance about your spousal abuse, harassment, or stalking situations, please contact us at Thomas Conrad & Conrad now. We will provide the flexible and full-service advocacy you need in this challenging time.
If you are the victim of domestic violence
and you need help due to family violence or domestic violence, we are here to help. Our first step will be to obtain a PFA: Protection From Abuse order. You have the rights and we will help you exercise them.
Protect yourself and your family with a PFA. This order is enforceable by the police and can be obtained quickly. Stop the violence and get the protection you need.
If you are accused of domestic violence
and you feel you are being falsely accused, contact Thomas Conrad & Conrad.
It is important for you to know that if you violate a PFA order, you could be facing an ICC (Indirect Criminal Contempt) hearing, and looking at up to six months in jail. To show up at an ICC hearing without a lawyer is not in your best interests.
Courts take these hearings very seriously and so should you.
Flat Fees on Our Legal Services
Flat fees are available in many types of matters (no-fault divorces, custody conferences / hearings, property settlement agreements, support conferences / hearings, protection from abuse hearings, adoptions, etc.).
Flat fees avoid the unknown, unexpected, and often excessive attorney fees resulting from hourly fees and large retainers charged by most attorneys for these same types of services.
