Australian citizenship and Good behaviour bond

Hi Guys please im in limbo now i need help cant get a proper answer , i want to apply for the Australian citizenship but my luck had to go to court in july this year because of a really stupid unintentional mistake as i was a bit drunk ( 0.052 ) sitting next to Learner driver I wasn’t driving but got pulled over and got tested and sent to court .
At court no conviction has been recorded and no fines has been imposed just a conditional release order ( good behaviour bond ) for 12 months which end next year july.
My question is is there any law that suggests that if you apply for citizenship during a good behaviour period ( no matter what is the offence ) your citizenship application cannot be approved .
Spoke to a local lawyer and told me to wait till after the 12 months good behaviour end but i still think its unfair as ive been a good person all the years im here with no offences at all and paying my taxes on time /
Appreciate any help .

Do what the lawyer says. Your lack of remorse is very telling.

You were lucky to only get a good behaviour bond for your offence. Being over the limit while in charge of a car often has a higher penalty.

You can't say that you have been a good person all the years you were here, when you did that, and had to appear in court for your offence.

If you don't want to risk being refused citizenship, it might be best to wait, as you have been advised.

Otherwise submit, and see what happens.

Regarding paying your taxes on time, that has nothing to do with your offence.

On the 26th October you asked the same question and received several responses, one of which was from a RMA stating that what you were told "was not true". Is there any reason why you have reposted?

Following on from what others have said you are very lucky you received a GBB with no conviction - trying to mitigate your offence because you were not driving belittles the seriousness of it, not to mention what a poor role model you were to the person in the drivers seat.

It matters not whether you wait until the expiration of the GBB or submit now - the fact is that you are still required to declare the offence, which will be listed on the AFP PCC.

thanks Guys for replying and im sorry if im annoying anyone but the guy that was driving he’s 28 years old use to drive here on international license but my luck he was on his L as he was in the process of getting his aussie license .
My question is there any law that prevent my application from being approved just based on the GBB still in effect and does it mean that my application for citizenship will be refused and judged just based on this offence .
Thanks everyone
