How Long Is an Injunction Valid For?

Temporary Injections typically last no more than 15 days but may be extended for good cause, such as the respondent not being served with the temporary injunction and notice of final hearing.

At the full hearing, the judge will decide whether to give you a final injunction. The final injunction will last longer than 15 days and may provide you with more protections than the temporary injunction did.  The final injunction may have a set period of time that it will be in effect (for example, one year) or it may not have an expiration date.  If there is no expiration date, either you or the abuser can file in court to modify (change) or dissolve (end) the injunction at any time and the judge will decide whether or not to grant the relief requested.
