A PPO is a civil action between citizens.
A “no-contact” bond condition can be enforced on a defendant during a pending criminal prosecution. It means that a defendant
cannot personally, or through a third party, contact, call, or write, etc. the victim or any other party with whom the judge
orders the defendant to have “no contact “with. A “no- contact” condition can stay in effect for the entire duration of the
criminal case, or until the victim requests that it be removed or lifted, requiring the judge’s approval.
