Assault and Threatening

Conviction For Assault or Threatening  Affects Much More Than Imprisonment.

In B.C., the Criminal Records Review Act mandates background checks on individuals seeking employment in many fields. A conviction for assault or even the imposition of a peace bond could make it difficult to find employment in your chosen field.

Domestic Assault Defence: Burnaby, Coquitlam, Surrey, Vancouver

Allegations of domestic assault are very concerning. Charges involving assault of a spouse or family member can have devastating effects on the accused, including denial of access to children, removal from the family home and denial of bail.

Domestic assault accusations can result in a number of charges, including:​

  • Assault
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Assault with a weapon

​Our lawyers can assist you with resolving issues related to your bail order, including restrictions on contact with your children and access to your family residence. In many cases it is possible to have these orders deleted or amended.

Peace Bond (Section 810)


Section 810 of the criminal code makes provisions for a peace bond, which acts as an alternative to spousal assault charges. Although a peace bond does not result in a criminal record, it can limit contact with the alleged victim, children and family home, resulting in many of the complications that accompany a criminal charge.
