I am a PA attorney - Yes, the PFA stands regardless if they live in separate counties. He's not to be at her residence - although a specific residence is stated in the PFA - it's also is applicable to whereever she moves to.
However, your son is entitled to a hearing on the matter of his violation of the PFA and you can go to court and testify on his behalf about the circumstances of such. That she told him to come and get their baby's medical card so that he and I could take the baby to the hospital.
Given the circumstances of the violation of the PFA - I'm sure the judge won't find him in contempt of the PFA. To the contrary, I'm sure the judge is going to re-examine the PFA and potentially even void such. Your son would not be the first to be subject to this situation. In fact, many woman telephone the man and say they are all sorry and please come over - then he says he will. Immediately they call the police and state that he just threatened her and is saying he's on his way over to her house right now. The police are then waiting for him when he arrives and immediately haul him off to jail.
So, inform your son to be careful. You do all the running to her house or he's going to wiind up in jail for contempt of the PFA.
