Can an interpersonal protective order be extended?
Yes. When your final order is about to expire, you can apply in court for it to be renewed (reissued) for a period of up to 3 years. There is no specific limit to the number of times that you can apply to renew your order. However, if the order was never violated since it was issued, this may be considered by the judge when deciding whether or not to reissue the order.1
