    Answered . In order to set aside a restraining order, the court has to make findings that the restraining order is no longer necessary. Generally, what a judge is looking for is some sort of affirmative effort on your part to address whatever the issue was at the time of the restraining order. Anger management counseling, domestic violence classes, substance abuse treatment and couple's therapy are all good indicators that the restraining order is no longer necessary.
