My girlfriends mother is threatening to put a PFA on me but i did nothing wrong to have such a thing put on me. I looked to see what would cause i PFA to be placed on someone and i am not doing one thing wrong. My girlfriends mother is causing my girlfriend to hurt herself and have suicidal thoughts and tendencies. So, cant she file a PFA against her mother.
No. Pennsylvania does not recognize emotional abuse, and causing someone else to self-harm is not grounds for a PFA.
