E.K. v. J.R.A.

Here, the Superior Court dealt with two interrelated orders. The Court ruled the trial court did not abuse its discretion in granting a PFA, finding that Mother had a reasonable fear of imminent serious bodily injury by Father. However, the Court vacated a Custody Contempt Order, finding the trial court violated Father’s due process rights when, sua sponte, it found him in contempt, though he did not have notice he was facing a possible contempt finding nor did he have the opportunity to be heard.
