Can I file to extend my final civil no-contact order beyond the 1 year?
Yes, you can apply to extend it. You can file to renew the final order before the civil no-contact order runs out one or more times. To file for a renewal, you must file a “motion to renew no-contact order.” You do not need a new incident of unlawful conduct to renew your order – the judge can renew it if s/he finds there is “good cause” to do so.1

What happens if the abuser/stalker violates the civil no-contact order?
If the stalker/abuser violates the civil no-contact order, s/he may be charged with contempt of court, which may result in a fine or imprisonment.1 You would have to file a Motion and Order to Show Cause for Failure to Comply with No-Contact Order form (#AOC-CV-528).
