      (a)   The respondent has inflicted, attempted to inflict, or threatened to inflict abuse on another.
      (b)   The respondent has inflicted, attempted to inflict, or threatened to inflict serious bodily harm on the person's own self.

      (c)   Any dangerous mental health issues of the respondent;
      (d)   A previous or existing protective order issued against the respondent under 23 Pa. C.S. §§ 6101 et seq, 42 Pa. C.S. §§ 62A01 et seq., or under any other applicable statute;
      (e)   The violation of any previous or existing protective order issued against the respondent under 23 Pa. C.S. §§ 6101 et seq, 42 Pa. C.S. §§ 62A01 et seq., or under any other applicable statute;

      (i)   The unlawful or reckless use, display, or brandishing of a firearm by the respondent;
      (j)   The history of use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force or intimidation by the respondent against another person, or the respondent's history of stalking another person;
