The new NSW bail laws, the Bail Act 2013, which came into effect on 20 May 2014, represent a substantial rewrite of the bail laws in NSW. The Court has a fresh criteria to apply and a person is generally more likely to be granted bail under the new act than the old act (Bail Act 1978).

  • If you or a family member have been refused bail then you should contact a lawyer immediately as bail applications are often strongest in the early stages of a prosecution while the case is still weak
  • Make sure your lawyer is familiar with the new Bail Act 2013

The Bail Act 2013 gives the Court power to:

  • Dispense with bail (ie release a person from custody without any conditions whatsoever)
  • Grant bail conditionally or unconditionally (ie release a person from custody with or without conditions)
  • Refuse bail
