How do I get a protection order dropped or dismissed? 8 Answers as of March 12, 2013I have a protection order against me which I can't have any contact with that person. The judge didn't request it, it was a group called "cares." I and the person involved want desperately to have this dropped and work things out! How do we go about it?

You should hire an attorney and disclose all the facts and circumstances to see the best way to proceed. Probably you and your attorney should talk to the prosecuting attorney to try to convince him to drop the charges.

That person needs to appear in Court and tell the Judge that they want the Complaint dismissed. They need to say that no one forced them or coersed them and they do not feel threatened. The Court may consider dismissing it if this is a civil restraining order.
