Personal Protection Orders & Domestic Violence

Michigan Statutes provide for 3 type of Personal Protection Orders (PPO) depending on the nature of the relationship between the parties MCL 600.2950. For Domestic PPO A petitioner may seek a domestic relationship against:

  1. A spouse
  2. Someone the Petitioner currently resides with or resided with in the past.
  3. Someone with whom the Petitioner dated.

Key Factors

  1. When it is clear upon notice that irreparable injury, loss or damage, will result from the delay required to give notice or notice itself will precipitate adverse action, an order may be entered Ex-Parte, meaning without a hearing prior to entry.
  2. A Respondent has 14 days to file an objection after being served.
  3. At Corriveau Family Law it is critical in many cases that this deadline not be missed if one is hopeful in setting aside a PPO.

A PPO may have far reaching impact on a Respondents life, based on many factors including:

  1. Suspension/interference with parenting time.
  2. Entering on premises including residences and places frequently visited.
  3. Communicating with Petitioner.
  4. Purchasing or possessing a firearm.
  5. Jail
