Introduction to Bail Lawyers

When you or your loved one are facing the challenge of obtaining bail, having the right bail application lawyer by your side can make all the difference. Our experienced team of bail lawyers Perth are here to navigate the complexities of the process and work tirelessly to secure your release.


Understanding the Bail Application Process

The bail application process can be intricate, involving a series of legal steps and considerations. Bail is essentially the temporary release of an accused individual from custody while awaiting trial. A well-prepared bail application is essential to demonstrate to the Court that the accused is not a flight risk and will comply with all necessary conditions. Our skilled bail lawyers in Perth have a deep understanding of the legal requirements and nuances involved in crafting a strong bail application on your behalf.


Conditions and Variations of Bail

When bail is granted, certain conditions are often imposed to ensure the accused person’s compliance with legal obligations and to safeguard the interests of the community. These conditions can include reporting to a police station, adhering to curfews, surrendering passports, and refraining from contacting certain individuals. Our bail lawyers in Perth are well-versed in negotiating favourable conditions and can also assist in seeking variations to existing bail conditions when circumstances change.


Other conditions included as part of a bail undertaking are:

  1. To attend court at a specified time and place;
  2. Agreeing to surrender an amount of money if you do not attend court as required;
  3. To report to a police station as frequently as required by the court;
  4. To reside at a particular address and not to change address without permission of the court;
  5. To comply with a curfew at your residential address; and
  6. Not to consume alcohol or illicit substances and comply with breath tests and/or urinalysis

The court may also require a surety to sign an undertaking. A surety is a person who will take responsibility for your performance of your bail undertaking, by agreeing in writing to surrender an amount of money if you fail to comply with your bail undertaking to appear in court/


What to Do When Bail is Refused

If a bail application is refused, it’s important not to lose hope. Our dedicated bail application lawyers are here to assess the reasons for the refusal and develop a strategic plan to address the concerns raised by the Court. We understand that each case is unique, and we are committed to exploring all available options to secure your release and protect your rights.

Breach of Bail

A breach of bail occurs where a person on bail fails to comply with their undertaking without reasonable excuse, either by non-attendance at court or by non-complying with any of the conditions of their bail.
In Western Australia, breach of bail is an offence contrary to section 51 of the Bail Act 1982 (WA). If convicted of this offence, it carries a maximum penalty of 3 years imprisonment or a $10,000 fine.
If you are charged with an offence of breaching bail, the court may sentence you for the breach and may consider whether your bail should be allowed to continue.


Prior convictions for breaching bail will appear on your criminal record and may be taken into account by the court when considering whether to grant you bail for any future offences.
Breach of Protective Bail Conditions

A Protective Bail Condition means a condition imposed under the Bail Act for the purpose of ensuring that an accused person on bail does not endanger the safety, welfare or property of any person, or does not interfere with any witnesses or otherwise obstruct the course of justice.


A breach of protective bail conditions is considered by the court to be a serious offence.
