What happens after a person being restrained is served with a PPO?
Once the respondent is served, you must file separate "proofs of service" that your agent has handed both the Petition for personal protection order (PPO) (either Form CC 375 (PDF), CC 375M (PDF), CC 377M (PDF), or CC 377M (PDF)) and the Court's PPO Order (either Form CC 376 (PDF), CC 380 (PDF), or CC 380M (PDF)) to the respondent. The proof of service forms for each are virtually the same, and are located on the back sides of the Petition and PPO forms. The proof of service requires information on the date, time and place where service occurred. File the completed forms with the Circuit Court Clerk.
Once the Respondent has been served, he/she may be taken to court for a violation and potentially punished for criminal contempt of court if they fail to comply with the terms of the PPO.
