Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
When was it imposed please?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it was imposed in march 2009 and runs with my licence for life i am not allowed contact with children under 16 but dont know what wlse is on my SOPO as not seen it since my conviction and only got to see it after convicted
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
You can apply for variation or removal of the SOPO at any time.
However, you have to be realistic. A court is not going to remove it just because it is causing inconvenience. You will have to show a change of circumstances which means you are no longer a risk.
If you conviction does not involve children then you might get a variation that allows you to be around him.
If it does involve children then you should be aware that this will probably provoke a social services investigation.
Can I clarify anything for you?
