Yes potentially. You would need to apply to the court for a child arrangement order so that you can spend time with the child. When the parents can’t come to a decision on their own, one or both parents may apply to the court for a child arrangements order. This order can stipulate where and with whom a child lives, when and where they have contact with a non-custodial parent, and certain other matters relating to the child’s welfare. The fact that you are on bail does not automatically prevent there from being contact. The court can look into the allegations against you and can order contact. There is an excellent book on this topic which costs about a tenner from amazon which can help although happy to answer additional questions. I have attached a link to the book and also the form which you need to complete to commence the process.

On that basis if you made an application for a child arrangement order then the court would wish to consider a fact finding hearing to determine whether the allegation against you is true or not prior to the court agreeing to any contact. A fact finding hearing would basically be a hearing to determine solely the question of the allegation. Again the book I mention above may be of assistance as it explains in some detail the process.
