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 This record check will not show charges that were withdrawn, dismissed, or diverted, but it will show a peace bond for the duration of the year that it is in place.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 It will show peace bonds while they are in place, and it may also show charges that were withdrawn or stayed.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.

I am grateful that Ms. Moira McAvoy was my lawyer, and I remain thankful to her for everything. She made a successful resolution to my case possible. Ms. Moira McAvoy is a professional, trustworthy lawyer, and a compassionate person. She is an excellent listener and knowledgeable of the law. From the start, she was an excellent guide. I did not know anything about the legal system and court, and she outlined everything clearly in advance, so I could understand things. She never rushed me through anything. She spoke clearly, explained everything, considered what I said, and provided options and advice. She kept me up to date on new information, requirements, and deadlines. She was always positive and this helped so much.
Ryan Patmore and his team are simply the best. I was bullied by CPS in 2020 and it landed me with three separate charges, assault, refusal to blow and DUI, which all went down as I was parked at a friends. After some research and a conversation with Michael, he directed me towards Ryan and at the time I didn’t know that would be a game changer in my favour! He is honest, transparent, helpful and a brilliant mind. He successfully appealed my license suspension with ATSB and then proceeded to get the crown to dismiss all my charges before trial. I never had to step foot inside a courtroom. If you are in need of a criminal defence lawyer, don’t think twice, get in touch with this firm and ask for Ryan Patmore! The guy is an absolute saviour.
Joseph Beller, from the very beginning when I first contacted and then retained Joseph as my representative I felt I was in good hands. When I emailed him with a question. I got a prompt response. We communicated often on the phone as needed. Joseph kept me informed as to the process. He made sure I knew all the potential results so I knew and could plan for the different outcomes. I know this his his job. But appreciate his professionalism and also his ability to not make me feel any extra stress. Well done.
