How will a peace bond affect my criminal record?

>>>How will a peace bond affect my criminal record?

One of the most important things to know about a peace bond is that it is not a finding of guilt nor is it an admission of guilt. As such, you will not get a criminal record for signing a peace bond. In fact, when agreeing to sign a peace bond, it is not even necessary to admit to the facts of the case as they are presented by the Crown Prosecutor.

While a peace bond will not give you a criminal record, it will show up on some enhanced record checks. Whether a peace bond will show up on your criminal record check depends on the type of record check that is completed.

Police Criminal Record Check:

A police record check is the most basic type of record check, and it is often requested for employment or volunteer purposes. This type of record check will only show convictions that you received as an adult and convictions that you received as a youth. A peace bond will not appear on this type of record check.

Police Information Check:

A police information check is more comprehensive than a criminal record check, and it will be the type of record check that some volunteer or employment positions require that you provide when applying to the position. This record check will not show charges that were withdrawn, dismissed, or diverted, but it will show a peace bond for the duration of the year that it is in place.

Police Vulnerable Sector Check:

This record check is the most comprehensive type of record check. It will show peace bonds while they are in place, and it may also show charges that were withdrawn or stayed. However, it will not show charges that were diverted.

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

My career depended upon the successful resolution of my matter, and I couldn’t have been happier with the way Michael handled my case. He knew right away the best strategy to take to allow me to have my charges withdrawn, and was able to follow through as he promised, for a very reasonable cost. I would highly recommend this law firm.

S.A.

I would definitely recommend Michael Oykhman and his team. Not only were my charges dropped but the professionalism and empathy I was shown gave you confidence knowing someone was working just as hard as you would be to obtain the best possible result. For anyone looking for lawyer he is one of the best hands down.
