What Is an Extension?

Survivors/victims of family violence can obtain two different types of protective orders:

  • Temporary order of protection. If an individual reports suffering from family violence and a judge believes the evidence supports those allegations or the survivor/victim is likely to experience more violence in the immediate future, they can provide the survivor/victim with a temporary order of protection. Similarly, if an abuser is arrested for domestic violence, the survivor/victim can request a temporary protective order while the abuser is in jail. Temporary protective orders typically last for up to 45 days, until the parties involved can attend a hearing to determine whether an extended order of protection is necessary.
  • Extended order of protection. At the hearing, both parties have an opportunity to present evidence supporting their case. If the judge determines that the alleged abuser is responsible for committing acts of family violence, they may award the survivor/victim with an extended order of protection. These orders can last for up to two years.

Orders of protection can forbid an alleged abuser from continuing to threaten, harass, or injure a survivor/victim, order them to remain a certain distance from locations the survivor/victim visits, award a survivor/victim with temporary custody of any children the parties share, and more.

In some cases, however, the survivor/victim may feel the length of their protective order should be extended. By filing a Motion to Extend a Temporary Protective Order, the survivor/victim can obtain a temporary protective order that lasts for longer than the standard 45 days. This is common in cases where the hearing is scheduled more than 45 days after the order is issued.

It's important to note that extended protective orders cannot be renewed. Once an extended protective order ends, the survivor/victim must wait for a new incident of violence to occur before reapplying for another extended protective order.
