OK. This is odd.
I appreciate that SS have to look into concerns, but a minor conviction from 18 years ago is not grounds to prevent him from seeing his children.
SS have authority to act protectively if children are at risk of harm, but I just don't see it here.
Has his wife alleged any violence or domestic abuse? That could be the only reason why such draconian measures may be put in place.
I don't have a precedent, but it basic human rights principles - and the ECHR article 8 right to a family life.
Not for 18 years, certainly.
If you have further questions, you can always come back to me.
