See Section 40-13-6(A) NMSA 1978. 10 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com [Approved, effective November 1, 1999 until July 1, 2001; approved, as amended, effective May 1, 2001; April 9, 2002; as amended by Supreme Court Order 07-8300-20 effective September 17, 2007; as amended by Supreme Court Order No. 08-8300-40, effective December 15, 2008.] Committee commentary. — The general provisions of the order of protection, including injunctive orders, shall "continue until modified or rescinded ... or until the court approves a subsequent consent agreement...." Section 40-13-6(B) NMSA 1978. In contrast, "[a]n order of protection ... involving custody or support shall be effective for a fixed period of time not to exceed six months". Id. The custody or support "order may be extended for good cause upon motion ... for an additional period of time not to exceed six months", id., unless "the order supersedes or alters prior orders of the court" pertaining to child custody or child support. See Section 40-13-5(C) NMSA 1978. In the latter situation, "the court may enter an initial order of protection, but the portion of the order dealing with child custody or child support will then be transferred to the court that has or continues to have jurisdiction over the pending or prior custody or support action". Id. Factual Distinction Between Mutual Order of Protection and Stipulated Order of Protection The core factual difference between the Form 4-965 NMRA order of protection and this stipulated order of protection is that Form 4-965 NMRA requires the court to make findings that each party has committed an act of domestic abuse. In contrast, this order is entered by the court with no finding of domestic abuse by respondent, but rather, is based solely on the stipulation of the parties that, without admitting to acts of abuse, each party is willing to have the restraining order issued against respondent.
