A personal protection order is also known as a PPO. A personal protection order, or PPO, is issued by the Circuit Court. This order may be used to prohibit a person from assaulting, attacking, beating or molesting you, threatening to kill or physically harm you, stalking, following, contacting, coming to your home or work, or any other conduct prohibited by the court’s order. In the state of Michigan, depending on the relationship between the parties, and the alleged conduct, there are two different types of personal protection orders that a petitioner may see from the court: Domestic PPO or Non-Domestic PPO.
