Domestic Abuse Resources For Survivors In
Bucks County

These are difficult times for many of us, but this can be a particularly scary situation for those in abusive relationships. Restrictions aimed at decreasing the spread of COVID-19 can create environments that increase the potential for domestic violence. If you feel trapped, alone, and/or are stuck at home with your abuser, there are resources to help you.

Although the Bucks County Courthouse is currently closed to the general public, the Family Court is still accepting and hearing Protection From Abuse (PFA) petitions. Victims can find the petition on the Court’s website . A phone number is also provided for those seeking more information: 215-348-6822. During the Judicial Emergency, the Courthouse is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to until 2:00 p.m. If your situation is an emergency or you are in immediate danger, call 911.
