  1. If you want the order of protection against your husband dismissed, you can file a petition in court to modify (or vacate) the order. Be prepared to appear in Court to explain why you want the order of protection dismissed. The Court will want to make sure that you are acting on your own free will, that you are not seeking to dismiss the order because of any threats made against you or because of any fear you may have of retribution by your husband. The Court will look to protect you, even if you feel you no longer need the protection.
