TOPIC: ++ The Other Guy ++

++ The Other Guy ++ 4 years 10 months ago #63460

Hello everyone,

I wondered what the legal or even moral stand is on finding information or history about someone who lives with my child?

For example, ex-partners new boyfriend...

I asked the police and they said unless your ex-partner requests an investigation on him (because of Clare's law) then there is no way of finding anything potentially negative.

What about a CRB check?

Any advice most welcomed...

Best regards,

John

I don't know If you could do a CRB but I seem to recollect that it is also possible for a small fee.

I want to see a much fairer system in place, where Dads and their children have a voice that can be heard.
There are many groups of people that have equal rights within our society and its about time Dads were given equal rights too.

I think you can do a CRB check on yourself but other than that it has to be for employers use only....I wait to be corrected though!

Hi,

This seems to get played down in court especially by the other sides Barrsiter if it is mentioned. You will hear a lot of noise about your former partner being competant and can decide who is near your children so unless you have suspicions of the other guys past then it may be poo pooed in court and by the other side.

However....you can requests checks to be done, you may wish to go this route but keep it to yourself unless it shoes anything.

See this link - www.gov.uk/police-check-someone-involved-with-child

Regards,

Dave

Thanks Nanny and Dave,

(I meant Sarah's Law, sorry).

I agree it's a tricky one and to be fair I don't know anything about him, and don't want to point fingers. That said, there have been a few trivial things which I have cause for concern.

I will stay cautious for now and thank you for the link and your help.

Regards

John
