Can someone object to the Order of Protection or Injunction Against Harassment?

The defendant may request a hearing on the Order of Protection or Injunction Against Harassment one time during the year in which it is in effect. A hearing will usually be held within 10 business days from the date requested. The plaintiff must prove the allegations in the petition by a preponderance of the evidence (more likely than not). At the contested hearing, the judge will hear testimony and consider evidence presented. The judge will affirm the order as issued, modify or change it in some way, or dismiss it.
