Types of Personal Protection Orders
The three types of orders issued are domestic relationship, non-domestic (stalking) and non-domestic (sexual assault) PPOs.
Domestic Relationship PPO – these are issued to protect someone who is connected to a person
in the following ways:
- Spouse or former spouse
- Individual with whom you have or had a dating relationship with in life
- A person who shares a child with you
- Someone who lived or currently lives in your home
Non-Domestic (Stalking) PPO
- Designed to protect people from an abuser who is not connected to them through a domestic relationship outlined above.
- At least two incidents of stalking must be documented before an order will be issued. Stalking includes but is not limited to harassment through text messaging or phone calls or repeatedly showing up where you live or work.
Non-Domestic (Sexual Assault) PPO
- Issued against a person who has been convicted of sexually assaulting someone.
- These PPOs are also issued if a threat of sexual assault has been made and the person is not in a domestic relationship with the individual he or she is threatening.

Protections Issued by PPOs
Each PPO has varying levels of protections issued by the order. Besides standard protections offered by orders, you can request additional restrictions from the court based on the circumstances in your case.
Typical Domestic PPOs prohibit the person from entering your home or interfering with your job or school. He or she will also not be allowed to have contact with you. Additionally, the individual will be prohibited from threatening you, causing physical harm to come to you or stalking you.
Other restrictions placed on them including not allowing them to buy or have a gun in his or her possession.
In addition, Non-Domestic PPOs including both stalking and sexual assault related ones, restrict a person from following you, calling you or contacting you by any other means. The person also cannot threaten to harm you in any way.
Additionally, he or she will not be allowed to approach you at home, work or in public places. Just like with Domestic PPOs, the individual will not be allowed to have or buy a gun while the order is in place.
