One of the considerations that you must have in selecting a criminal defense lawyer is whether that lawyer has the time (and energy) to help you when unexpected issues arise. Believe me, particularly in criminal cases that involve disputes between people, particularly family members or partners, issues occur quite frequently. Many problems arise in the context of bond conditions. Below is a template motion to modify bond conditions in Georgia criminal case:
MOTION TO MODIFY BOND
Comes Now, the Defendant in the above-styled case, by and through the undersigned counsel of record, and moves this Honorable Court to modify the conditions set upon her bond. In support of his motion, the Defendant respectfully shows this Honorable Court the following:
1. On September 29, 2016, the Defendant was granted a signature bond that required her to attend a —————— program.
2. The Defendant is ————— throughout the United States.
3. The Defendant is unable to complete 24 weeks of consecutive family violence intervention classes and travel for her employment.
WHEREFORE, the Defendant respectfully requests that the conditions of his bond be modified to permit the Defendant to complete counseling at the direction of a licensed clinical psychiatrist.
