News Flash: World Does Not Revolve Around Canada[edit]

The article states that "[t]here is no equal order to the peace bond in the US system." First of all, there is no such thing as the "US system." The United States is composed of 50 states, and each state has its own separate legal system. further, many, if not most or all, of the states issue, in connection with divorce/family law proceedings, orders of protection or other injunctions intended to prevent domestic violence between spouses or other family members. This article needs to be rewritten.John Paul Parks (talk) 14:57, 26 April 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Beyond Canada?[edit]

I happened upon this term in connection with Canadian law, so I wrote the stub that way. It may well be used in other jurisdictions as well, though. JamesMLane 07:10, 1 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Surety category[edit]

I doubt that this article belongs in Category:Sureties. My understanding of suretyship is that it involves a promise by one person to answer for the debt of another. The underlying debt is owed by the obligor to the obligee; the surety agrees that, if the obligor defaults, the surety will pay the debt to the obligee. I don't think that there is such a relationship in a peace bond. (The name may be a bit misleading in that respect.) JamesMLane 18:15, 25 October 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"Peace Bond" Miscategorization[edit]

It is confusing to see the entry for "Peace Bond" under a stub for "Sureties". It is not connected to a Bail Bond issued by a surety/bondsman in any way. Perhaps this section would be better served by moving it to another section

There are a few places it would be appropriately placed, i.e., domestic violence, victim's rights, assault, and so forth. My experience as bail bond agent assures me that this is an inappropriate stub for bonds, as well. Nojail4you 02:38, 16 October 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This stub needs more than expansion; it needs to be rewritten already[edit]

At it stands today, with two mentions of “withdrawal of charges” (without that subject having been introduced or even explained later), one might deduce that a prerequisite for the issuance of a peace bond is that charges have to have been laid against the individual. But at least one summary on states that peace bonds are preventative court orders “[…] are available to police to protect the public before a criminal offence has been committed.” If that is correct, doesn’t it contradict what the article seems to imply?
