What is the Burden to Have the Order Extended for an Abuse Prevention Order (“APO) or Restraining Order (“RO”)?
To extend an Abuse Prevention Order (“APO”) the Plaintiff has to pick a showing similar to that they seek during the initial Order. So, there is not a presumption from the fact that a prior Order has been issued. It is the Plaintiff’s burden to establish the facts existed at the time of the extension of the Order is sought to justify or relieve. The case that explains that is Banna vs. Banna.
