Personal Protection Orders

In certain circumstances, obtaining a personal protection order (PPO) is necessary in order to protect an individual or individuals in our community. Obtaining a PPO is a very serious matter. It has considerable legal implications for all parties involved, including the person who pursues the petition. The decision to pursue a PPO should not be taken lightly. A PPO is not a tool for getting even, seeking revenge or trying to gain unfair leverage in a relationship.
