Can my daughter have a crb check done on her husbands new girlfriend. She is concerned as her own 11 year old son was taken away from her by social services some time ago, she dose have contact.
HIThank you for your questionMy name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help youFor clarity - the new girlfriend has a child who was taken into care is that correct?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes. Also there have been threats of violence made towards my son in law & his girlfriend by her family as they don't like him.
Has she discussed this with her ex
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
They are still married. She has spoken to him about it, he keeps asking if his daughter can stay at hers with him. My daughter has said no mainly because her daughter says she doesn't like the girl friend, so my daughter has said she doesn't want her daughter to have anything to do with the girl friend.
Has mediation been attempted?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No, as far as I know he is refusing. He has only just decided to sort out taking him of their tenancy.
How old is the child?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
She is 7 with a mine of her own & a very confident child.
A CRB check can only be done with the co-operation of the person being checked.However your daughter could ask Social Services if they would have concerns, and she can also use Sarah's Law to askthe Police if there is a record of sexual abuseYou can read more here her ex takes the issue to court then CAFCASS can and will require a CRB check on his partnerPlease ask if you need further details
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
If they go to mediation will there be a CRB check done.
No, not unless the girlfriend agrees to do one
