33.640. Expiration, dissolution and renewal of order

1. An ex parte order expires within such time, not to exceed 7 days, as the court fixes. If a verified application for an extended order is filed within the period of an ex parte order or at the same time as an application for an ex parte order pursuant to NRS 33.560, the ex parte order remains in effect until the hearing on the extended order is held.

2. An extended order expires within such time, not to exceed 1 year, as the court fixes.

3. The family or household member or law enforcement officer who filed the verified application or the adverse party may request in writing to appear and move for the dissolution of an ex parte or extended order. Upon a finding by clear and convincing evidence that the adverse party no longer poses a risk of causing personal injury to himself or herself or another person by possessing or having under his or her custody or control or by purchasing or otherwise acquiring any firearm, the court shall dissolve the order. If the court finds that all parties agree to dissolve the order, the court shall dissolve the order upon a finding of good cause.

4. Not less than 3 months before the expiration of an extended order and upon petition by a family or household member or law enforcement officer, the court may, after notice and a hearing, renew an extended order upon a finding by clear and convincing evidence. Such an order expires within a period, not to exceed 1 year, as the court fixes.
