Hi, help needed!! I had my first cafcass telephone interview after i applied to the courts for access to my children. During the interview, my police history came up. There were a few things that came up that i had forgotten about (mainly drunk and disorderly or drunk fighting!) But this was a while ago, approx 8 years ago. My ex doesnt know about these incidents and i dont want her to know. Is there a way this can be kept from her or does everything have to be revealed?

hi,

after your initial call with cafcass, they should be writing up a safeguarding letter about the call. They do police checks, so if there is anything on your records, they will write about it. They have to report this info to the courts. you and your ex should both be getting a copy of this safeguarding letter at some point. Courts and both yourself and ex need to see information as they will use it to make decisions about child arrangements. They are very cautious and would like to know if there's any safeguarding concerns with parents caring for children.

@bill337 thanks for the reply. Even if these were 7/8 years ago? Is there no way this cannot be disclosed due to the length of time that has passed?

@akumar8282 am not sure. You could contact the cafcass officer you spoke with and ask about it.

Hello mate.

Every case is different so don't take this as gospel but on my original safeguarding call with caffcass they done the police checks and it showed that I got stopped with possession of a class B drug, possession of stolen goods ( I didn't even know about that) and an incident at football.  These were all over 15 years ago, lady on the phone said they have no bearing with whats going on.

Have heard nothing about them since, not been brought up in court or mentioned in any statement.

Hope this will put your mind at rest.

@macmyers thank you very much for your reply. Was your police check noted on the paperwork sent your ex?

No, there was not a mention of it.  

The caffcass officer told me it wouldn't as it had no bearing on allegations ex put against me.
