back to top107.725 Renewal of order under ORS 107.716 or 107.718.

(1) The court may renew an order entered under ORS 107.716 or 107.718 upon a finding that:

(a) A person in the petitioner's situation would reasonably fear further acts of abuse by the respondent if the order is not renewed; or

(b) A person in the situation of a child who was in the petitioner's custody during the time the order existed, who was also included as a protected person in the order and who has reached 18 years of age since the date the order was entered would reasonably fear further acts of abuse by the respondent if the order is not renewed.

(2) A finding that there has been a further act of abuse is not required to renew an order under subsection (1) of this section.

(3) The court may renew an order under subsection (1)(b) of this section regardless of whether the original petitioner agrees to or seeks renewal of the order. If the petitioner does not agree to or seek renewal of the order concurrently with the request of the child who has reached 18 years of age, the court may modify the order upon renewal to exclude the petitioner as a protected person in the order. A child who has reached 18 years of age may seek renewal under this section without having to file a petition under ORS 107.710.

(4) A court may renew an order on the basis of an ex parte petition alleging facts supporting the required finding. The petition must include allegations made under oath or affirmation or a declaration under penalty of perjury. If the renewal order is granted, the provisions of ORS 107.716 (5) and 107.718 (8) to (10) apply except that the court may hear no issue other than the basis for renewal unless requested in the hearing request form and thereafter agreed to by the petitioner or the child who has reached 18 years of age. The court shall hold a hearing required under this section within 21 days after the respondent's request.
