    Question What Can I Do if My Extended Order of Protection is Being Appealed

    My question involves restraining orders in the State of: Tennessee

    I recently had my order of protection hearing. I was granted a one year extension. The extended order of protection is now being appealed. What are my options? Do I have to comply in answering the interrogatories questionnaire that I received in order to keep it in place? What are my rights as the petitioner in this case?

    This is simple. You have to defend against the appeal. That's your "right."

    If you don't properly respond to the appeal addressing why the appeal should not be granted and you don't comply with the interrogatories, the court is likely to rule in favor of the appellant and cancel the order of protection.

    I suggest you consult an attorney for the proper way to handle the appeal.

    Not really sure what this question means. Options for what? If you're talking about options in connection with the appeal, you can either file a brief or not.

    I've never heard of interrogatories in the context of an appeal, and, if the order has already been granted, I can't conceive why there would be any discovery. Does this "interrogatories questionnaire" cite any statute? From whom did you receive it?

    Of what value would a list of rights be?
