AN ACT TO ALLOW JUDGES TO TEMPORARILY RENEW A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROTECTIVE ORDER UPON THE TIMELY FILING OF A MOTION TO RENEW A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROTECTIVE ORDER AND TO AMEND THE REQUIREMENTS FOR CUSTODY MEDIATION.
Senate amendment amends the 4th edition as follows.
Amends the proposed changes to GS 50B-3, authorizing the court to temporarily renew a domestic violence protective order 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 by adding that the motion to renew a protective order is upon the plaintiff's ex parte application. Adds that if a temporary renewal is granted, and the defendant is not personally present in court, then the order must be served on the defendant in the same manner as an ex parte order.
