What can I do about my bail conditions?

A In the vast majority of common assault domestic violence charges, if the complaint has been made by a relative or partner of the accused, the police will impose bail conditions to prevent the individual returning to the family home or contacting his family. This, quite naturally, causes a great degree of personal anxiety and upset throughout the family.

If it is the type of common assault case where the complainant has contacted the police and made it clear that she/he no longer supports a prosecution for common assault, we can make an application to the Magistrates Court to have the bail condition removed. The police will usually want to conduct a risk assessment, particularly in relation to domestic violence common assault charges. This will entail visiting the family home to speak with all parties concerned to check that there are no concerns or objections to the person charged with common assault returning to the home address.

As expert common assault defence lawyers we can very regularly successfully apply to the court to rapidly remove bail conditions if required.
