Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Criminal Law litigation attorney in Mississippi.

Under Mississippi law, a protective or restraining order is enforceable for up to three years. Thus, it the order is older than this, it should be expired. However, I would recommend that you call the court clerk for the county where the order was entered and ask them to look up your case and make sure the restraining order has expired.
