Default Do protective orders in Texas always have an end date?

Do protective orders in Texas always have an end date (where they must then be renewed) or can they be forever in some cases?
I have an ex that I really think should be barred forever from being anywhere near me.

Yes, they all have expirations, but it >could< be set to expire in, say, 50 years.

Why is that? And why didn't you speak to your attorney about that during your divorce?

Permanent orders last two years. The other party can seek to have the order lifted after a year.

If he’s incarcerated for under 5 years it terminates one year after release. If he’s in more than 5 years it expires two years after he is released. And once again he can seek to have it overturned once a year.

I think in Texas the PO can be indefinite as well.

Most have a fixed time as noted above, but in a few cases they can be indefinite or for the life of the person--meaning forever basically.
