Can an extreme risk protection order be renewed?

If the judge decides that the respondent still poses an extreme risk of harm to himself/herself or others by possessing a dangerous weapon, the judge can renew the extreme risk protection order for another six months. The State’s Attorney or the Office of the Attorney General may request a renewal 14-30 days before the current order expires.1 If you originally filed the petition for this order, the law does not allow you to ask the court for a renewal because the prosecutor will be substituted as petitioner prior to the hearing to get the order.2 However, you could contact the State’s Attorney or Office of the Attorney General a few months before the order will expire to tell them if you still think the respondent poses a danger and to ask the lawyer in charge of the case to renew the order.
