A Personal Protection Order, or PPO, is an order issued by the Circuit Court. It may protect you from being hit, threatened, harassed or stalked by another person. The PPO may also stop someone from coming into your home or bothering you at work. It can stop them from buying a firearm or finding your address through school records. It can also stop them from taking your minor children unless required by the court. If you are looking to Modify, Extend, or Terminate a Personal Protection Order, use this form:

The type of PPO is determined by how you know the other person and not the behavior. Please review the following to determine which PPO is appropriate.
