Making a Bail Application

Bail Applications - Bail at First Court Appearance

Bail at First Court Appearance

Generally, in Queensland, a person has their first appearance in the Magistrates Court. In the vast majority of cases, a magistrate has the power to grant bail to a person charged with a criminal offence. In those cases where a person cannot receive bail from a magistrate (such as in the case of murder), then they can apply for bail in the Supreme Court.

Bail Applications - Options if Bail is Refused in Queensland

Options if Bail is Refused in Queensland

Where a Magistrate refuses to grant bail, people remanded in custody often consider making an application for bail from the Supreme Court. In some cases, only the Supreme Court can grant bail. Although a person make make successive bail applications, it is generally necessary to show there has been a material change in circumstances between the two applications that justifies a different outcome.

Bail Applications - How to Apply for Bail in Queensland

How to Apply for Bail in Queensland

In applying for bail for a client before a court, it is important to ensure that the bail application is presented as persuasively and professionally as possible. This means that the material relied on by the person applying for bail is well prepared. It should also be well presented. Anderson Fredericks Turner has a demonstrated history of success in applying for bail in courts across Queensland.

Bail Applications - Bail Conditions in Queensland

Bail Conditions in Queensland

A police officer or court commonly impose special conditions on a person charged with an offence as part of the grant of bail. There is a legal principle that conditions should not be more onerous than is necessary to reduce any risks of granting bail to an acceptable level. Understanding the different types of conditions and how they impact on various risks is often critical to successful bail applications.

Bail Applications - Varying Bail Conditions

Varying Bail Conditions

It is possible for both a person facing charges, as well as the prosecution, to seek to vary bail conditions. A court may vary bail when it is “necessary or desirable in the interests of justice to do so”. A variation to bail conditions may be necessary due to a change of circumstances, or a practical issue that is encountered in the original grant of bail that makes it unduly burdensome or impractical.

Bail Applications - Consequences for Breaching Bail in Queensland

Consequences of Breaching Bail in Queensland

A person who breaches their conditions of bail, or fails to appear in court as required, may be charged with an offence under the Bail Act 1980 (Qld). A breach of a bail condition or a failure to appear in court as required may lead to a refusal of bail for any new charges, as well as a revocation of bail on any existing orders for bail.
