Enforcing a Personal Protection Order (PPO)

A Personal Protection Order (PPO) order is enforceable anywhere in Michigan by any law enforcement agency, as soon as it is signed by a judge. If you violate a Personal Protection Order (PPO) in some place other than Michigan, you will be subject to the enforcement remedies and penalties of that other state, Indian tribe, or territory. A violation of a Personal Protection Order (PPO) does not have to occur in the presence of a law enforcement officer, and that officer can make a warrantless arrest of a PPO Respondent if the officer has “reasonable cause” to believe that they violated the PPO. Michigan statutes clearly states that criminal sanctions are to be imposed in addition to whatever criminal penalties apply for a separate criminal offense. See MCL 600.2950(23) and 600.2950a(20).

If you violate a Personal Protection Order (PPO) in Michigan and you have been notified of the order, either orally or by formal service, any law enforcement agency can arrest you. If you have a Personal Protection Order (PPO) against another individual who you believe has violated the PPO, you can file motion seeking he or she be arrested. In order to do this you must have proof that the individual was served with or notified of the order.

If you are arrested, the court will set a date, time, and place for a hearing on the charges against you. If a hearing is not held within 72 hours, the respondent may be released from jail after posting bond until the hearing is held.

Can I get a Personal Protection Order (PPO)?

If you have been/are being physically, emotionally, or sexually abused by a current or former spouse, a family member, a domestic partner, the other parent of your child, a current or former roommate, or a current or former person in a dating relationship you may be eligible to get a Personal Protection Order (PPO). Or if you have been/are being stalked, and/or repeatedly harassed to the point of being terrorized, intimidated, or threatened you may also be eligible to get a Personal Protection Order (PPO).

In order for victims of stalking to obtain a Personal Protection Order (PPO), you do not have to show a relationship with the stalker but you must establish a pattern of behavior on their behalf and at least two separate incidents that have caused you or would cause a reasonable person to feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed or molested.

If you are in immediate danger you can request an ex-parte order, which will take effect immediately without a hearing and without advanced notice to the other party. A non-emergency Personal Protection Order (PPO) will require a hearing in front of the Circuit Court Judge before a Personal Protection Order (PPO) will be issued. Terminate a Personal Protection Order PPO Michigan Attorney.
