Governor Signs Delozier Bill to Notify Courts of Child Abuse Allegations in PFA Proceedings
10/25/2018
HARRISBURG – On Wednesday, legislation authored by Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland) to require courts to have complete records regarding whether a child subject to a Protection from Abuse (PFA) proceeding has been abused or is the subject of a child abuse investigation was signed by the governor.

“I am proud to have a third bill signed into law this session,” Delozier said. “This new law is the conclusion of six years of work on this issue. Courts need a full picture of the family situation when making PFA decisions. This new law will allow for a better understanding of family dynamics and protect children from possible abuse.”

Act 92 of 2018 requires a plaintiff in a PFA case to notify the courts if he or she has knowledge of a substantiated child abuse investigation so that the courts will know that a PFA order issued may have a legal impact on the defendant in the realm of child abuse. The petition also sets forth the name of the investigative agency.

The law goes into effect in l80 days.

The 88th Legislative District in Cumberland County includes Lower Allen and Upper Allen townships and the boroughs of Lemoyne, Mechanicsburg, New Cumberland, Shiremanstown and Wormleysburg.
