If there is a tempoary restaining order and a court date is issued.
Does the perpertratorhave to show up in court when it is tine for the temp order to be changed to a.oernanent orderI

Thank you for your question. No, there is no requirement that the defendant be present for the hearing to determine if a TRO will be made permanent. It would be in their best interest to be there and to fight it though if they have the facts on their side, since a permanent order is, just that, permanent and becomes a part of their criminal history.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.
