As a canadian, do i have the right to travel abroad during court trial?
Your ability to travel during a court process depends on the conditions, if any, attached to your release. A lawyer would need to review your release papers (undertaking, promise to appear, or bail documents) to determine if any restrictions on travel exist.
Even if you are NOT restricted by the release documents, you may wish to consult with an immigration lawyer about the potential pitfalls of travelling - particularly to the US - while awaiting disposition on an outstanding charge.
If you wish to have an Initial Client Consultation with one of our experienced Toronto Criminal Lawyers, please feel free to contact me by e-mail or phone and I would be happy to arrange it.
