A Personal Protection Order (PPO) is a Court order to stop threats or violence against you. You can obtain a PPO if you have reasonable fear for your personal safety or liberty. A PPO can help protect you from someone that is threatening, harassing, stalking, or hurting you.
The three different types of Personal Protection Orders are domestic relationship PPO, nondomestic (stalking) PPO, and nondomestic sexual assault PPO. A Judge may issue a PPO Ex Parte meaning the PPO was issued without a hearing and based on the facts in the Petition for PPO alone.
