Q: Is there any way for me the "victim" to appeal a lifetime protective order bc I no longer wish to have a protective orde
I don't want this protective order in place and I lied on the hole thing just cuz my sister wanted me to get one an I thought I could just remove it at any time.
A: Retain a lawyer. Protective Orders can be modified twice,
A: You're probably looking at a Motion to Vacate / Request to Modify rather than an appeal. If the judge won't agree to vacate then the request to modify gives you a backup of simply removing the no-contact and keep-away conditions... that leaves VoPO on the table in case of future problems. The protected person has more options for what they can ask for than the person whose liberty is constrained by the order.
