I had a protection order on my husband. I went today and filed for it to be dismissed. We have the first court date for it tomorrow. I do not know if it has been dismissed. Do I still need to go to court?
The best option would be to go to court and request it be dismissed. If you don't appear, the court will likely simply dismiss the ex parte protective order for lack of prosecution.
Any answer given is not legal advice and does create any attorney-client relationship. Any answer given is for informational purposes only. The best answer to any question is to talk to an attorney in person.
You should attend court and explain the facts that demonstrate you do not require the Protection that the Order provides. If I were the Judge and a beneficiary of an Order failed to appear in Court, I would be concerned for her/his safety and would therefore, not dismiss the Order without more evidence on the record to support a dismissal.
If you want to be sure it gets dismissed go to court and explain why you dont need it.
