My wife has secured a job with a care agency but her DBS

Resolved Question:

My wife has secured a job with a care agency but her DBS check has failed. She has no criminal convictions. Would my conviction (about 8 years ago) for theft affect her DBS check and if so what can she do about it? I was put on the POVA register for 10 years so I don't know whether this has any effect either?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Has she seen her check, she should get a copy?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
She hasn't had a copy but has to go to see them again tomorrow. I will tell her she needs to ask for a copy.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 1 month ago.

Yes please do. But whatsoever you have done, wont affect her DBS check whatsoever.

Its only related to her, not you.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

If not, I would appreciate a 5 star rating for my answer. Thanks!

please, my wife is concerned that because she took my name when we married this may be affecting her DBS? Is the name association anything to do with her failing the check?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 1 month ago.

No, nothing you have done will affect hers.

Does that clarify?
