PFAs

I have a PFA for DS and I against BD. It expires in 2 weeks. He hasn't violated it so it can't be extended. But does he get a notification that it expired? Or if he's not keeping track of the date, will he just not know?

The current order can't be extended, but a new one can be written based on the same evidence, if that evidence demonstrates a history of abuse.  Unless he has a lawyer, he won't get written notification of the expiration.

He can't afford a lawyer. But I can't get a new one. I looked into it. We're going to try to have BDs rights terminated anyway and a PFA makes it harder. I just hope he doesn't realize when it's up and just doesn't try to contact us.

Well, set yourself up for success.  Do you live alone with your son?  If so, can you have someone stay with you, or go somewhere with your son for a while after the PFA expires?  What about surveillance and security around your home?

We live with DF. I'm not afraid of BD. And he lives too far away for him to do anything.
