Personal Protection Orders
A personal protection order (PPO) is a court order that attempts to stop threats or violence. It may protect you from being hit, threatened, harassed, or stalked by another person. A PPO will help to prevent someone from coming to your home or work. During a divorce, a PPO may help protect a husband or wife from domestic violence.
Who Can You Get a Personal Protection Order Against in Michigan?
In Michigan you may be able to obtain a domestic PPO if the person you want protection from is:
- your spouse or former spouse
- someone with whom you have a child in common
- someone you are dating or dated in the past
- someone who lives now, or has ever lived, in the same household with you
You must be able to show the court that this person is interfering with your personal freedom or has threatened or committed violence against you.
