How do I extend, change, or cancel my order of protection?

A judge can extend your order of protection, if you can show that it’s necessary for your protection. Return to the family court clerk’s office and request a motion to extend form. Be sure to bring your order of protection with you.

If you need to change your order of protection, you will need to return to court and ask the judge. Return to the family court clerk’s office and request a motion to modify form. Be sure to bring your order of protection with you.

If you have reconciled with the respondent and want to cancel your order of protection, you do not have to go to a hearing. Instead, you can return to the clerk’s office and ask for an order of dismissal. You will have to show proper ID and sign a written request to dismiss the order on the basis of reconciliation.1
