Bill summary

Amends GS 50B-3, authorizing the court to temporarily renew a domestic violence protective order that is set to expire before the hearing on the motion to renew the order, for a fixed time not to extend beyond the earlier of the date of the renewal hearing or 30 days from the date the order is set to expire, absent the express consent of both parties. Does not allow extension of a temporary award of custody entered as part of the order beyond the maximum one-year period. 

Appropriates $25,000 from the General Fund to the Administrative Office of the Courts for 2022-23 to create digital or printed educational materials regarding the act's changes to be made available to domestic violence court staff and nongovernmental stakeholders serving survivors. 

Applies to pending motions to renew filed before, on, or after December 1, 2022.
