I can't believe that any judge would actually lift this PPO, but I've never pressed charges against him. I wish i would have now. I'm totally scared for my life and childrens well being...what to do???

Chances are the judge won't lift it, though with out going to court and fighting for it, they may not renew it once the time is up. Fight to keep it. And if all else fails, move somewhere safe, and talk to your lawyer on what to do.

If he's watching the house even afterward, you can get him charged with stalking as well.

I had some luck with my citys victim advocate thru the police station, she is getting all the police reports together for me...free of charge and will be coming to court with me...I also was advised to get statements from any neighbors that have witnessed him watching the house, after the ppo was served...thank you for all the comments! I am finally standing up to him and it feels good!

I never pressed charges against my x-husband and I was still granted a protection from abuse order (PFA). Just state the facts and tell the truth. I don't see why the judge would erase it.
