Chance of crown letting me enter a peace bond?

i have been charged with assault and uttering threats by the crown counsil. I was in an altercation and i was hit first, but the police arrested me and not the other person. the other person has admitted that they hit me first. i do not have a criminal record, i am jsut wondering what the chances are that they will agree to let me enter a peace bond and withdraw the charges. i have a daughter with the victim and we have arranged counsilling sessions.

I can't speak for the Crown in your area, but they are usually pretty reasonable people when it comes to these sorts of things.  If the victim consents to the peace bond you tend to have a much greater chance of reaching this sort of agreement.  I'd start by placing a call to the Crown and asking them to contact the victim to get their opinion on a peace bond.

They aren't likely to offer it to you, so you should request it yourself.  They'll have to determine if the victim is ok with the matter being resolved in this manner, and that takes time, so I would make the request ASAP.
