Protective orders can be a crucial tool in divorce and child custody cases, helping to protect individuals from abuse or harassment. However, it’s important to note that these orders are not permanent and can be dismissed under certain circumstances.

In the state of Texas, a person who has been restrained by a protective order can request that it be removed one year after it has been issued. In order to do so, they must show the court that there is no longer a need for the protective order to be in place.

It’s worth noting that the process for dismissing a protective order can vary depending on the specific circumstances of a case, and it’s always a good idea to seek the guidance of a qualified attorney.
