A Personal Protection Order, or a PPO, is the most common form of protection order. It places legal restrictions on the violent family member to try to prevent any further violence on any of the family members.
To grant a PPO, the court must be satisfied, on the balance of probabilities, that family violence has been or is likely to be committed against a family member and it is necessary for the PPO to restrain the violent family member.
A PPO can only be granted if the court is satisfied. The trial process may take some time, so if protection order is required urgently, one can apply for an Expedited Order.
