Everyone should have a safety plan.
Whether you are just being a responsible adult, or someone asking the court to remove a protection order that you don’t want “protecting you,” it is a good idea to have a written safety plan that helps you think through what you would do in the event of an emergency.
There are plenty of sample safety plans available on the internet. Here is a sample safety plan similar to what we have used in court when representing someone who want’s to have a protection order lifted.
Having a safety plan can demonstrate to the judge that a person requesting to have a protection order lifted is a responsible adult who is being proactive and does not need court interference with their life.
ANYONE SEEKING TO HAVE A PROTECTION ORDER LIFTED SHOULD CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY.
