How can I vacate an order of protection? 17 Answers as of September 24, 2012I have recently placed an emergency order of protection on my boyfriend of three years. At this time, I am trying to vacate the order in Illinois because of emotional reasons all of this has caused us both. He is willing to seek help and this is the only time he has ever done this. I feel partially responsible for what happened.

I am a New York lawyer and you should ask a lawyer in that state since there may be differences in the law. In New York the victim has no right to remove or alter an Order of Protection. The court makes the order to protect the victim of the assault or other crime and all you can do is to consult with the prosecutor to try to get a non-offensive order that allows you to see the person but prevents him from being offensive in any way.
