Domestic Violence and Updates to PFA Laws
In this fast-paced workshop, we will discuss the nuts and bolts of the Pennsylvania Protection From Abuse Act, as well as the Protection From Sexual Violence and Intimidation Act, which took effect in 2015. Topics covered will include a synopsis of each Act, who is actually covered under each Act, the court process, civil vs. criminal remedies and the legal relief available to victims of violence. This presentation will also cover the ethical issues involving client and victim confidentiality, as well as ethical issues related to pro se representation.
