A: If the protective order was issued in the course of the divorce in that case and not filed in a separate protective order case filing with a different case number, the temporary orders in the divorce become null and void after the rendition of the decree of dissolution unless the protective order is included in the decree stating it is still in force and affect. If filed in a separate case number, it will be good until the time limit runs it was ordered to be valid for.
