Can I file to extend my final civil no-contact order?

You can file to renew the final order one or more times. To file for a renewal, you must file a “motion to renew no-contact order” before the civil no-contact order expires.  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
