What facts do I have to include in the papers?

The facts that you include in the personal protection order (PPO) application are very important! Tell the Judge what your relationship is with the respondent, and what has happened recently that makes you need a PPO. In short, tell why you need to be protected. The forms give you very little room to include facts, but you can attach additional pages. Include detailed facts to support your need for a protection order.
