Are you going to be present tomorrow?
The reason why I asked is because if you are present and the Judge cancels the protection order, you can then ask in court, for the return of your firearms, since there is no longer a restriction on you keeping them. The Judge can sign an order which would require them to be returned to you, since it is not of issue any longer. Worse case scenario, you do need to reduce it to writing and can file it after. In the body of the motion, you want to explain to the Judge the reason that they were confiscated and advise that the order is no longer in effect, which was the reason for them being taken in the first place and ask for their return.
If you do it orally, the Judge may just provide you a blank order to write up in court. If you wanted to really be prepared, you could write it and bring it with you and after the Judge decides on the motion, file it in open court.
I shared with you above what needs to be included. You can go to the clerk of court and see if they have a blank motion, whereby you write in the styling of the case and what relief you are requesting.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
