Setting a date in criminal court

Go back

Start over

After you’re charged with a crime, you need to go to court regularly to update a judge about your case. This is called going to set-date court or case management court.

You keep coming back to set-date court until you go to trial or resolve your case.

If you do not have a lawyer, this tool can help you decide:

  • how much time to ask for before your next court date, and
  • what to say.

This tool has general legal information for people living in Ontario, Canada. It makes suggestions but does not give legal advice. The suggested amount of time to ask for is only a guideline. You may need more or less time depending on your situation.

This tool does not ask you for any personal information. Your answers are not saved or stored online.

It’s important to read some information before you start using the tool.
