Are there different kinds of PPOs?

Yes. There are two kinds of Personal Protection Orders (PPOs):

  • Domestic Relations PPO - if the respondent is a current/former spouse, current/former dating relationship, current/former resident of your household, or you have a child in common.
  • Stalking PPO - if you and the respondent do not have a domestic relationship, then you must establish that the respondent has been stalking you.

Note: Stalking must involve two or more "separate and non-continuous" acts. A single incident made up of a series of continuous acts, each immediately following the other, is not "stalking."
