A court order is still in effect unless there is a date of termination on the face of the order, or it is later modified or terminated. For restraining orders, the proper procedure, if there is no expiration date, is to bring a request for order of termination.

The party violating the order (the restrained party) is in contempt; however, if the other party does not bring a contempt motion then generally there is no reinforcement unless there is a previously scheduled hearing to determine compliance. The standard course of action upon reconciliation however is to have the order terminated.
