Instructions Regarding filing for Protection from Abuse Orders

For any older adult experiencing abuse, we urge you to contact our helpline; please see the attached document for instructions regarding filing for Protection from Abuse Orders in Philadelphia. SeniorLAW Center leaders were instrumental in advocacy in this effort with our partners. COVID-19 has a disproportionate and deathly impact on the older Americans we serve, who are also facing enormous challenges in accessing the courts in these emergency situations.
