Can I extend my protection order?
Yes. Due to a new law that became effective in August 2017, a protection order can now be extended for a period of one year. To extend your order, you must file a petition and affidavit to renew the protection order within the thirty days before your order is set to expire. Regardless of when you file the affidavit and petition, the renewed order would be effective beginning on the first day after your current order expires and would expire one year from that date.1
