Question: What ramifications can occur if both plaintiff and defendant want to drop the Protection Order and disobeyed the order by getting back together. They are married.

Answer: How to Dismiss or Quash an Order of Protection:
A plaintiff may request that an Order of Protection be dismissed or quashed at any time during the term of the order. Only a judge can dismiss or quash an Order of Protection.

To file a motion to dismiss or quash an Order of Protection, you must go to one of the Protective Order Centers to complete a motion. You will be required to provide identification to court personnel at the time you complete the Motion to Dismiss or Quash. You will be required to appear before a judge and explain why you want to dismiss the order. Please allow at least two hours for the entire process.
