I Need a Personal Protection Order — Nondomestic Sexual Assault

This toolkit tells you about getting a personal protection order (PPO) against someone with whom you have not had a domestic relationship. This means someone you have not dated, lived with, or married, or someone who is not a parent of your child. This PPO is to protect you from someone who has sexually assaulted you or someone who has attempted or threatened to sexually assault you. Or if you are under 18, this PPO is also to protect you from someone who gave you or tried to give you obscene material. For general information about personal protection orders, read the Articles. Read the Common Questions if you have a specific question. If you want to ask the court for a personal protection order, use the Forms link to prepare your forms. The Checklists below have step-by-step instructions for asking the court for a personal protection order. Go to Courts & Agencies for information about the court or agency that will handle your case.
