Duration of a restraining order
The restraining order is valid for the period ordered by the District Court, however, for a maximum of one year, but this period may be extended, if necessary. An extension requires a request to that effect to the District Court and the handling of that request.
An inside-the-family restraining order can, however, be imposed for a maximum of three months. Its period of validity will be decided case by case. An inside-the-family restraining order can, where necessary, be extended for a maximum of three months.
