Can I renew a sexual violence protective order?

The person who filed for the original order may request to renew a sexual violence protective order within three months before the order expires. The court will notify the abuser and hold a hearing where both parties can be present. The judge will grant the renewal if the petitioner proves that the abuser continues to pose a danger of causing him/her harm. A renewed sexual violence protective order lasts for up to three years.1
