I have a restraining order issued against someone. The restraining order will be expiring soon. Does it automatically get renewed? Do i have to go to court to get it renewed? If i decide not to get it renewed i guess it just expires. I was just wondering how this worked. Thank you
Generally these Orders for Protection/Restraining Orders are NOT automatically renewed. It will only be renewed if you petition to have it renewed, and generally only if you allege and prove continuing harassment/abuse, etc., depending on what was in your original filing/pleadings/Petition. You need to call the court, find out when the Order expires, what you need to do to renew it, and consult with a local attorney.

I am sorry to hear about your situation. You should read what it says but usually they don't automatically renew. If you want that and it doesn't say that in it, you'd have to go back to court.
You should contact an attorney to discuss your questions as additional information would be helpful.
Our firm has many years of experience in this field.
I wish you the best of luck.

The answer depends on whether it was a temporary or final order of protection. Temporary orders are usually given drom date o date duringthe pendency of an action. When the action is over there is usually a non-renewable final order of protection. So my best guess is that if the order you received was received at the conclusion of some legal proceeding it is non-renewable. If the proceeding is ongoing it will likely be continued.
