A Personal Protection Order (frequently referred to as a "PPO") is Circuit Court injunctive order that protects victims of family violence, dating violence or stalking. The term "Restraining Order" is used in many states but in Michigan the term "Restraining Order" means the same thing as "Personal Protection Order".
A PPO may prohibit a Respondent (the person who the PPO is filed against) from certain activities against the Petitioner (the person who is protected by the PPO) including but not limited to:
- Entering onto premises or appearing within the site of a Petitioner;
- Assaulting, threatening to kill, attacking, beating, molesting, or wounding the Petitioner;
- Purchasing a firearm;
- Interfering with the Petitioner's efforts to remove his or her children or personal property that is owned or leased by the Respondent;
- Interfering with the Petitioner at work or school;
- Engaging in Stalking or other Harassing behavior (including Cyber-Stalking);
- Any other specific act or conduct that imposes upon or interferes with personal liberty or that causes a reasonable fear of violence.
