False allegations of abuse are not uncommon in divorce proceedings. Ari Glasser, a law clerk at Pittsburgh family law firm Pollock Begg, explains how protection from abuse petitions and orders work, and what falsely accused individuals can do to fight untrue allegations.

A protection from abuse order is an order prohibiting the defendant from speaking or interacting with the plaintiff or plaintiffs. Only people who are your family or household members, sexual or intimate partners or who share biological parenthood with you may request a protection from abuse order against you. Protection from abuse proceedings can be initiated by the allegedly abused party, or by a parent on behalf of their minor children.

But the PFA process can be misused by one party to gain advantage in divorce proceedings or deprive the other parent of custody.
