For those of you who have an active restraining order against someone. If you intend on renewing that restraining order, you must appear back in Court on the date that it expires. The Court will not send you a notice to appear. If the expiration date of the restraining order is on a weekend, you must appear on the Friday before the order expires. A full hearing will occur on the date of renewal and both sides will have the opportunity to argue their position. If the Defendant does not appear, the RO will be extended. Alternatively, if the Plaintiff fails to appear, the RO will be dismissed.
