Personal Protection Order – PPO

Michigan’s personal protection laws allow for the issuance of a personal protection order against an individual, regardless of whether or not you were involved in a domestic relationship with that individual. A broad range of conduct supports the issuance of a Personal Protection Order and can be issued based upon harassing telephone contact.

Protection orders are utilized in family law, but often times abused by practitioners to obtain temporary sole child custody or exclusive use of the marital home. The ramifications of a personal protection order can be devastating if the charge remains on your criminal record.  If you have been served with a protection order, it is important to speak with an attorney quickly to comply with the Court’s deadlines.   Our attorneys are experienced in obtaining and defending PPO’s and offer a free office consultation to answer all of your questions concerning protection orders.
