Greetings. Our domestic violence statutes were recently “upgraded” by our General Assembly here in NC. Now, a domestic violence restraining order may be renewed for “good cause.” The statute was also changed to add the following language: “The commission of an act as defined in G.S. 50B-1(a) by the defendant after entry of the
current order is not required for an order to be renewed.”
So, yes, I think his long accusatory and condescending letters/e-mails will be enough for you. Just make certain to get it extended well before it expires. Best of luck.
