Michigan PPO Lawyer

In Michigan, you can file for a Personal Protection Order (PPO) if you are the victim of domestic violence. Under Michigan law, there are three types of PPOs which hinge on the relationship between the parties.

  • Domestic relationship PPO prohibits assaultive and threatening behaviors when there is a domestic relationship between the parties. A domestic relationship is established if the parties are or have been married, have had a child in common, have lived together, or have dated.
  • A stalking PPO prohibits stalking conduct and is available regardless of the parties’ relationship so long as two or more incidents of stalking have occurred.
  • A sexual assault PPO enjoins assaultive and stalking behaviors when the respondent has been convicted of a sexual assault against the petitioner or has threatened the petitioner with sexual assault.

PPOs may prohibit specific actions, such as assaulting, attacking, beating, molesting, contacting, stalking, or wounding the petitioner, possessing firearms, entering specific premises, including the petitioner’s home and place of employment. PPOs may also suspend the respondent’s parenting time.
