Can an order for protection be changed or ended early?
At any time while the extended order is in effect, the petitioner or the abuser can file in court to ask the judge to change (modify) the order or to ask for the order to be ended (dissolved) if there has been a change of circumstances. There would then be a hearing where both parties can appear in court and the judge would decide whether or not to modify or dissolve the order.1

What can I do if the abuser violates the order for protection against stalking and harassment?
If you believe the abuser has violated the order, you can immediately call the police. If an abuser has been served with a copy of the order for protection against stalking and harassment and violates the order, the police can immediately arrest him/her.1
