How to renew elder and dependent adult restraining order
Your Elder or Dependent Adult Abuse Restraining Order After Hearing (CLETS—EAR or EAF) (form EA-130) ends (expires) on the date and time listed on Page 1 in item 4. Your order will end on that date. It will no longer protect you.
If you are still concerned for your safety or want the restraining order to stay in place, you can ask to "renew" it. A renewal sometimes makes the restraining order permanent (with no end date). You must ask the court to renew your restraining order before your current one ends.
Follow the steps below to ask the judge to renew your restraining order.
1. Ask to renew a restraining order
Fill out forms and file them with the court. You will get a court date.
2. Serve the other side
Have the sheriff, or other server, deliver a copy of the filed forms to the restrained person.
3. Prepare for court
What to bring and what to expect at your court date. Go to your court date.
4. Go to court
Find out what happens in court and the next steps if the judge renews the order.
