When should I renew my order?
Restraining Orders, including Elder and Disabled orders, remain in effect for one year and may be renewed without an additional incident. You must apply to renew before the order expires. Renewal hearings are held at the same time in the morning as other protective orders.
Stalking Orders are of unlimited duration unless limited by law.
