Why you should contact a PFA / PFH lawyer if served with a temporary order:
If a temporary order for protection was placed against you, there is a lot at stake and a short window to stand up and fight to avoid serious consequences. You could lose your right to use and possess firearms/ammunition, and your ability to talk to family members, or even be around your children. Both temporary and final PFA and PFH orders can also result in criminal violations of the order, with minor or technical violations leading to criminal charges that will cause you to be thrown in jail for the very first violation.
