Thank you for your question.

Was the protective order civil or criminal?

I truly dont know. It was brought about because my ex wife abused her 5 year old son.
Family Lawyer: N Cal Attorney, Attorney replied 6 months ago

Who filed the petition for the order?

Do you have a copy of the order?

If it was a civil protective order that expired, then the restrained person regained her right to own firearms. I cannot tell if the order was civil or criminal but you could phone social services or the court and ask.

I hope this information is helpful.
