If you’ve been made the subject of a control order, it’s important that you are aware of its duration.
Control orders may impose onerous restrictions upon your movements and actions, which, if breached, could result in harsh penalties.
Under section 23 of the Crimes (Criminal Organisations Control) Act 2012 states that a control order remains in force until it is revoked.
This effectively means that control orders may remain in force indefinitely.
However, in certain circumstances, you may apply to have a control order revoked.
Our experienced criminal lawyers can advise you of your options when it comes to making these applications.
We can also offer advice about control orders generally, including information about their duration and your rights and obligations whilst under a control order.
