Can a PFA hurt my chances of getting a job?

21 May

Having a PFA on your record can indeed impact your ability to land certain jobs, particularly in the security, law enforcement, and child care industries.  In Pennsylvania, temporary PFAs can be expunged.  In many cases, a temporary PFA represents the end of a case and no final PFA or hearing is ever held. In this situation, the Pennsylvania courts have ruled that an expungement is allowed. The courts have held that where there is no permanant order nor any finding of fact that an incident of abuse has occurred, rather there is only a temporaryex parte order,  an expungement is available.  For assistance in filing a PFA expungement, contact the Law Offices of Lorraine A. Smith at (412) 427-4130.
