What are the requirements to renewing a restraining order?

Q: I've had a restraining order against my child's father for the past 2yrs but still feel unsafe due to his history of instability. Recently he told me enjoy my job while I can. Is that considered a threat enough to be grounds for a renewal of the order I have against him?

A: David's Answer: It's not so much that you'd be "renewing" the order of protection - its that you'd be filing a petition alleging a violation of the current order of protection. If you do it before same expires & assuming the Court sustains the violation, it may issue a new order of protection for 2-5 years. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Domestic Violence attorney for a full assessment.
