How do I change the conditions of my bail or police undertaking?
This question has an answer and 5 steps

2. Talk to a lawyer

Talk to a lawyer before you ask to have your conditions changed. Duty counsel do not usually help with variations or bail review applications.

Consent variation

The first thing you should do is ask the Crown if they will change your conditions. This is called a consent variation. A lawyer can help convince the Crown to agree to a consent variation.

Bail review

If the Crown doesn't agree to the variation, you can try to have the condition changed through a bail review. A lawyer can help you:

  • complete the application for a bail review
  • ask a judge in the Superior Court of Justice to order that your bail conditions be changed
