    Which court are you going to? The charges are serious, and generally if a breach avo involves an asssult then the starting point if found guilty is gaol. You need to get legal advice. I suggest you see the legal aid lawyer before going before the magistrate.

    You should see them at the court house before you do anything.

    I agree - sit down with the Legal Aid lawyer and arrange a decent length conversation,
    and ask him to seek an adjournment so that (s)he can receive proper instructions from you.
    With bail continued, of course.
