The video segments you are about to see provide general information about the law, not legal advice which is the application of the law to the specific circumstances of a particular individual. Although we have attempted to provide information that is accurate and useful, you should know that the law may differ from county to county and is subject to different interpretations. If you have a question about how the law applies to you, you are strongly advised to seek legal advice from a lawyer or an advocate authorized to provide legal assistance in Pennsylvania.
