Obtaining Protection From Abuse Orders in Philadelphia During the Pandemic

We are being asked to stay at home, but not every home is safe.

It’s important to know you can still obtain emergency Protection from Abuse Orders in Philadelphia even though local courts are closed in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

WLP attorneys, along with our partners at Women Against Abuse Legal Center, Philadelphia Legal Assistance and SeniorLAW Center have compiled a comprehensive go-to resource for obtaining Protections From Abuse (PFA) Orders in Philadelphia while courts are closed due to coronavirus.

Please download or review that document here, and share widely. You never know who may need this information. Thank you.

March 2020: The Women's Law Project's physical offices are closed but they are OPEN and working to serve your needs. Contact them here.

The Women’s Law Project is a public interest law center devoted to defending and expanding the rights of women, girls, and LGBTQ people in Pennsylvania and beyond.
