What are the steps of filing for a personal protection order (PPO)?
To file for a PPO you will need to provide the court with details about why you are requesting a protection order. If you have copies of police reports, hospital records or other official information you should provide this information for the court to review. You will also need to have information about the defendant including address and physical description. If you are divorced or separated you will need a copy of your orders. You will also need copies of custody orders if your children are involved. If you are in immediate danger you should ask the court for an ex parte order.

You may want to also bring notarized, written statements from witnesses, and copies of supporting documents from:
- Doctors
- Hospitals
- Law enforcement
- Social agencies

You may need to pay a motion fee.
