I have a Protective Order issued against me. How do I contest it?

You must come into the court with your copy of the Protective Order and request a hearing in writing. The hearing will be set within ten days of your request. The Protective Order is still in effect even if you are contesting it. You may only request one hearing during the year in which the Order is in effect.
