What is the difference between a emergency Order of Protection and a permanent (Plenary) Order of Protection?

An Emergency Order is not a permanent order. If you are the respondent, however, and you have been served with the order, you must abide by the terms, or you risk criminal charges being filed against you for violation.

The summons you receive with the order will provide you with the date and time of the hearing at which time you have the right to present your side of the story.

Then it will be permanent or not at all.

If you can prove to the court that not all the elements of “stalking” exist, then the judge will have to close the case according to the law.
