Can I Extend A Temporary Protective Order, And What Are The Requirements To Do So?
Today’s question deals with an extension of a TPO. Can you extend a temporary protective order, and what are the requirements to do so?
You can request to extend a temporary restraining order if you are still in fear of imminent threat by the adverse party. You must prove to the court that this is in fact the reason why you need to extend it. You need to know also that when you file an extension, unlike the TPO where there was no hearing, in this instance, the court will set a hearing because the court cannot order an extension of a temporary order without giving the adverse party an opportunity to go to court, to be heard, and to present his or her argument against why the TPO should not be extended.
You must notice the adverse party like it was noticed when you file for the temporary restraining order. In this instance, you are responsible to serve the adverse party, not yourself physically, but someone over 18 years old who is not part of the case. You can use the Sheriff’s office, you can use a process servers’ company, you can use an adult who has nothing to do with this case to serve, someone who’s over 18 years old. And then again, just be prepared that you must attend the hearing. If you want the judge to listen to your side as well as given the opportunity to the other side to the adverse party to respond.
