Can I renew my sexual abuse protective order?

The judge can renew your sexual abuse protective order if the judge finds that it is reasonable for you to fear for your physical safety if the order were not renewed. You do not have to prove that the abuser has sexually abused you again. The judge can renew your order based on your petition (without a full hearing) if the judge finds that the facts in your petition support renewing the order. The respondent has the option to request a hearing after s/he is served with your renewed order.1
