A personal protection action involves seeking an order from a circuit court to protect you from:
- Stalking by another person
The order can also prohibit a person from entering your premises and from removing minor children, unless the removal is part of court-ordered parenting time. The person filing the petition for personal protection is called the petitioner. The person to be restrained by the personal protection order is called the respondent.
