Thanksfor the information
The problem with this is that social servicesare a complete nightmare. Most other helping agencies try to rehabilitate offendersso that they can lead a normal life but social services have a differentagenda. Mostly at amounts to protecting themselves in my opinion but there wego .
The problem with this is that they will seethis as a red flag. There is nothing you can do about that. You can probablysee why they would see that.
As to the issue of telling the child's father,they are right. They have an obligation . If he has parental responsibility thenhe has to be told. The fact that you are no longer around maybe a preventativebut I would imagine they're saying that they don't believe that.
All you can do about that is try to negotiatewith them though.
I suppose in legal theory the breaching ofconfidence would amount to something that gave rise to human rights issues andso in principle you could judicially review a decision of social services butyou really don't want to go there. It is a very expensive action with a veryhigh test.
I am sorry but I'm afraid it is only reallytime that cures this.
