I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

She can request a new restraining order based on events that occurred after the restraining order was lifted. She would not be able to reinstate the order that has been lifted if there hasn't been any violence that supports the order. If your partner is being abusive toward you, you have the ability to file your own restraining order.

Here are some additional resources for victims of domestic violence. If your partner has access to your computer, be sure to clear this conversation from the history and open a private browsing session before you open the links.
