Will I get more disclosure after my first appearance date? 

The package of material that you get on your first court date is sometimes called “initial disclosure.” This is because there may be more things that you will receive from the Crown on later court dates. This is usually called “additional disclosure”. The Crown may just give you this additional disclosure on a later court date, or you may have to ask for it, depending on the material.

You should always talk to your lawyer or duty counsel if you feel that something is missing or wrong in your disclosure. Your lawyer or duty counsel may be able to help you ask the Crown for the information that you need. They may also be able to look at your disclosure and tell you if some information is missing that may be important to your case.
