Non-Domestic Personal Protection Orders

A personal protection order, or PPO, is issued by the court as a way to protect someone from acts of violence or equivalent threats. A PPO can be issued anytime there is a reasonable fear for someone’s safety or wellbeing, whether it be domestically or non-domestically. Wendy Divozzo, an attorney with the McCurdy, Wotila, & Porteous Law Firm, and Minews26 Reporter Abigail Blackrick explain the cases in which non-domestic PPOs are issued.
