Can I renew a gun violence protective order?
The petitioner can ask the judge to renew a one-year gun violence protective order by filing a request for renewal within the three months before the original order is set to end. The respondent must receive notice of the request for renewal. Then the judge will consider relevant evidence, including all of the factors the judge considered when issuing the original order. The judge will renew the order if the judge decides the respondent still poses a significant danger of causing bodily injury to him/herself or others by owning, buying, or receiving firearms or ammunition or having firearms or ammunition in his/her custody or control.
