Undertakings - a promise given to a court by a person

This is a promise given to the court. If a person is accused of violence, threats, harassment etc., then they can promise the court not to behave in this way in the future.

The person who gives the undertaking does not have to admit that they have done any of the acts they are accused of.

The undertaking is therefore given without admitting anything.
Once an undertaking has been given it has the same effect as a court order.

This means if it is broken then it will be contempt of court and an application can be made for committal to prison. See Committal Proceedings.
