My sor period is 5 years (community order in April 2012) yet

Customer Question

My sor period is 5 years (community order in April 2012) yet I was given a 7 year sopo.
Does the sopo extend my notification period?
If so I've read that sopos should run in tandem with the sor period?

Is there any reason you think it should extend the notification period?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The mappa officer has told me it does. However she has made several other errors in regards ***** ***** so I thought I'd check for myself

Thanks for the information

A SOPO should generally run in tandem with the notification periods but that doesn't extend the notification.

All that does is give you a ground to challenge the SOPO although it is fair to say that there are SOPOs that last for life.

Now the new orders are in force there will be human rights challenges in any event afresh.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
