If I get the restraining order dropped against the defendant(my boyfriend) Will the restraining order be dropped before our prom
We had a disagreement in school and he gripped my wrists in front of many people, but he had never done it before. I was scared but every teacher was making the situation seem worse than what it really was. I felt kind of forced to get the restraining order. But I did it anyway. Prom is April 27th and he is/was my date. He has never done anything like it before so it really surprised me. I don’t think it was intentional.
You cannot get the restraining order dropped until the next court date, so it depends on where in the process you are. If your boyfriend has already lost the hearing and had a permanent order, then you will need to file the appropriate paperwork to cancel the protective order. If the hearing has not been held, you can show up at the hearing and request that the judge not apply a permanent order.
However, if your teachers and classmates were scared for you, you might consider whether the protective order is more important than your date to prom.
