There are two ways to change a protection order that has been filed against you: modification or dissolution. An attorney can help you choose which type of change is right for your situation and then help you petition the court properly.
A “motion to dissolve” is when you feel as though the protection order filed against you was done unnecessarily or is no longer needed. This motion essentially requests that the court terminate or cancel the order, rendering it void and unenforceable.
A “motion to modify” changes a protection order when you feel as though it is too restrictive or broad, providing you with an unnecessary burden. After you file a motion, the court will decide whether to schedule a hearing to modify the order.
In both cases, a modification or a dissolution can only be performed by the court. In order to have your petition considered, be sure it is vetted or prepared by a skilled lawyer.
