Personal Protection Orders during DivorceBy
A personal protection order (PPO) is an order issued by the court. In situations where there is a domestic relationship, it can protect you from harassment, assault, beating, molesting, wounding, or stalking by another person. It provides police to prevent a crime before it happens, by preventing the other person from purchasing a firearm or interfering with your daily activities. The order can also prohibit him/her from entering your premises and removing minor children unless the removal is part of a court parenting time order.
