Can I renew a high-risk protection order?
The judge can renew an extended high-risk protection order after the respondent has received notice of your petition for renewal and has an opportunity to participate in a hearing. You must file a petition to renew the order within the three-month period before the order is set to expire. The judge can renew the order for up to one year.
Note: Even if a law enforcement officer filed the initial petition, a family or household member of the respondent may be able to file the renewal petition and vice versa. 1
