The effects of domestic violence can be devastating. It may involve actual physical contact, such has hitting the other person or it may consist of more subtle actions such as emotional and verbal abuse. Also, it may be characterized by one party withholding monetary funds to the other person.
If there is actual physical violence, the court has the authority to enter a Personal Protection Order (PPO). This Order has the effect of restraining the offending party from doing various things. A copy of the PPO is filed with the State Police and is entered in the Lien System. A violation of the PPO can result in criminal charges being filed and the offender being incarcerated.
