Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-What is the court application in relation to?
-Has the court ordered any of the requests that the solicitor is making - you state in paragraph 4 that it has not, but does that refer to only paragraph 4 or all the requests?
Have they outlined why they are requesting details of your family members and information from your counsellor?
Thank you for confirming. Firstly, police disclosure and background checks is the remit of the CAFCASS officer, who should have undertaken these checks in advance of the first hearing and reported back to both of you and the court. If there is definitive police disclosure requested, this must be done under direction of a court order.
If your extended family members do not have contact with you, or your child, then their details are irrelevant, and again this would have been something that the CAFCASS officer would have investigated and assessed.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you
