Cancel a Restraining Order

by | Dec 10, 2019 | Firm News, Florida Family Law

I filed a dating violence restraining order my boyfriend, but things have calmed down. I decided I don’t want to pursue this anymore. Can I cancel a restraining order on my boyfriend before the hearing date?

The Petitioner can typically drop it at the hearing after speaking with a Victim’s Advocate. Also, in general, if the Petitioner doesn’t show up at the hearing, the petition will be dropped. Additionally, if he has yet to be served, you can typically file a voluntary dismissal before hearing without needing to appear.
