An undertaking is a promise to the Court. An undertaking to the Court is as binding as an Order of the Court. For example, where a person gives an undertaking that they will take a certain action, the Court will require that person to take that action as if the Court itself had ordered the person to take the action. Breach of an undertaking is treated the same as a breach of an order.

This form has been prepared by the Court for use by a person when they wish to give an undertaking to the Court.
