The Protection From Abuse (PFA) order will not prevent both parties from attending scheduled court hearings at the same time. Please notify our staff if a Protection from Abuse order exists or if there are concerns about safety related to filing for support. We will work to address the safety concerns. All conferences now occur by telephone only and most hearings occur using video conferencing if parties need to appear in person. Case members personal information can be made confidential upon request. At a conference or hearing where we are aware a PFA order is in place, a third party will sit in to assure the proceeding is calm and safe. Harassing or threatening behavior will not be tolerated by audio, video or in person.
