PFA – Protection From Abuse

Roger Renteria represents both plaintiffs and defendants in dealing with protection from abuse orders. If you feel threatened or if you wish to challenge an order, Roger can help.If you have been served with a PFA order, there is almost always an immediate temporary order. This immediately impacts your life and you need counsel!

If a PFA order is violated, there are indirect criminal contempt charges right out the gate that can carry a penalty of up to 6 months in prison. Experienced guidance is needed because PFA orders often result in getting a person evicted. Any type of contact, even an alleged contact, will trigger an indirect criminal contempt charge.

If a final PFA order is issued against you, it can last up to three years and will result in the loss of, and the ability to possess any firearms.
