We’ve compiled a library of resources to help you understand a variety of civil laws in Pennsylvania.

Civil laws are laws that deal with cases such as divorce, custody, housing, and more. They are not the laws that deal with filing or prosecuting criminal charges. For example, an assault is a criminal act that can result in criminal charges, but if you would like protection from the person who assaulted you then you could request a protection order under a civil law.
