What do I do when the order expires?

If your protection order expires, you might be able to petition the court for an extension of the original order, or you might not. It depends on the tribe or state court that issued your protection order in the first place.

If you would like to extend the protection order, ask the court clerk if it is possible to do so, and how to go about doing so. Finding out this information before your order expires can help protect your safety.
