Can I get temporary custody as a part of a protection from abuse order (PFA) against the other parent?

You may be able to get temporary custody of your children as a part of your PFA. It is recommended that you get legal advice from an experienced lawyer to address the complex issues that surround custody and filing a petition for a protection from abuse order.
