Turning Point staff assist the community with Personal Protection Order (PPO) forms, motions, and e-filing and also have Legal Advocates available to support survivors through the legal process.
- The Personal Protection Order Office and Legal Advocacy Program are located in the 16th Circuit Court (40 North Main, Mount Clemens). Due to the pandemic, they are currently offering services via phone, by calling the office and leaving a message.
- You do not need a police report to file a PPO.
- PPO’s are person to person (you cannot file against a group or unnamed individual), and are public record.
- Legal advocates are not attorneys but are well versed in the legal system and victim’s rights, and provide support by appointment only.
- Going to court can be an overwhelming and stressful time for survivors; we can provide survivors with advocacy throughout the legal process, as well as accompany survivors in court.
