If you choose to have him back then that is a matter for you.

You are perfectly free to do that.

If you keep making allegations though then he will be remanded again.

I asked what marrage rights we have can orobation keep us apart tou didnt answer my questio
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

The conditions of his release will probably prevent him having contact with you.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

So yes, for the time he is on licence then can.

That is what happens I'm afraid when allegations are made. They cannot be controlled afterwards.

i have requested them to be removed as they were requested when he was released in 2014 he served 3 years in total and licence ends in may
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Social services may also be concerned about the welfare of the children even after his licence comes to an end.

I'm afraid that is it not entirely unreasonable that Probation will not allow him to have contact with the victim of the crime for which he is on licence.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

I'm afraid they won't take any notice of your requests.

The only way to avoid this is not to make reports to the police. Once you call the police, you lose control.

It wasnt a allergation he was found guilty as a man came in my house an see what happend my safety officer said she dont hav time to help or talk to me an that in to write to his offending manager which i have done the restrictions were requested in 2014band he was recalled and they used same restrictions again but i didnt ask for them
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Social services have already told probation they have no concerns but she woant let him see his kids
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, I understand. That is why he is on probation.

I was just making the point that the conviction was consequent upon your allegation and when you do that you cannot therefore demand that the conditions of his release allow him to return to you.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we have no rights even tho we are married their is nithing we can do
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Not if you make allegations. They cannot be consequence free I'm afraid.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

He will be removed from licence at some point and then probation will not be able to make threats.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Social services will have a concern if he returns to live in a house with children.

He may be on a SOPO that prevents him doing so. It depends on the orders that have been placed upon him.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Social care and my self agree we should do marrage councilling as licence ends in may an then hes free probation said when hes free he can do what he wants i was being sensible and trying to build a relationship for the children befor his licence ends it makes sense to do this y the licence is their
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He has to sign it every year for 5 years can i approach a judge at court about this as he is a fantastic dad and social care are willing to let him hav shared care of our disabled son
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

They may agree that now but they are likely to have a view if he moves in unrestricted.

It just too dangerous. No agency is going to be happy about this.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I bare to differ as he has no concerns around children and it wasnt like it sounds as i said in my statement but i wasnt heard so basically we cant ever be together hes done all the programmes social care requested why in prison an doing bbr now
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Ok.

Best of luck.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Last thing donwe have rights as married
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

No, I cannot agree with that.

The position is as I have said.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

I'm very sorry.

All the best.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Probation police an social care have already said they have no concerns regardin children
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Ok. Best of luck.
