3. Understand what could happen to your criminal record

If you're found guilty of disobeying an order of the court or failing to obey a peace bond, you could get a criminal record.

Offences caused by not obeying a peace bond are serious. If you're charged with another criminal offence later, having been convicted of failure to comply can affect whether you're held for bail, and your chances of getting bail.

A criminal record can have a serious impact on your life. It could affect your travel, immigration, employment, and volunteer opportunities.

A lawyer can help you understand how a criminal record could affect you.
