Can my non-domestic sexual assault PPO be extended?

To extend a non-domestic sexual assault PPO, you can file a motion to extend the order in which you will request a new expiration date. The motion must be filed with the court that issued the PPO no later than three days before the order is to expire. The court must act on the motion within three days after it is filed.1

If you do not file the motion to extend within this timeframe, you may still be able to file a new petition for a new PPO against the respondent and start the process all over again.
