An Order of Protection in Missouri must last longer than 180 days and less than one year. However, many times, a year is not long to protect someone from a scary situation. Either party to a Protective Order can motion the court for a renewal of the Order. The court will then set a hearing and decide if a renewal is appropriate.
The party who requested the renewal does not have to provide new evidence of stalking or abuse, they need only believe that the danger still exists. Contact us to learn how we can help renew your order of protection and keep you and your family safe.
