A Personal Protection Order is a court order that protects you from being harassed, beaten, assaulted, molested, wounded, or stalked. The PPO prohibits a named individual from doing these things to you. It also prohibits the named individual from entering your premises and removing your children, unless there is an overriding court order.
To obtain a PPO you must go to the Oakland County Circuit Court (6th Circuit court) at 1200 North Telegraph in Pontiac, where you ask a clerk for a "do-it-yourself PPO packet." You must follow the instructions carefully when filling out the forms. The forms are then forwarded to a Judge. To have a named individual served notice of the PPO, you can contact the Oakland county Sheriff’s Office Civil Division, located in the same complex, at 1200 Telegraph in Pontiac, or call at (248) 452-9725.
