quick qusetion can any one tell me if i can give copies of previouse convictions and police storm logs from crimanal cases to the district judge and CAFCASS or will this be breaking the law or data protection.
i have been accused of many minor offences by my x and most of the papers are police storm logs which show they have lied and i also have my x and her partners previous convictions this was all supplied to me as part of a further accusastion by my x and her partner for purpose of defence.
I don''t know your circumstances or the details of your case, but if you are hoping to reach a sensible and amicable agreement it''s best to keep your accusations to yourself. It will become very costly if you don''t.
Take it from someone who made that mistake already.
I have had a similar but different experience regarding my medical record.
In my case I wanted my medical record submitted to court especially the bit where my ex tried to have me sectioned behind my back (only actually found out about that as a friend who was there when he phoned out of hours doctors told me).
Anyway, ex refuses to agree that I could access my own medical record to prove that it was him that had phoned - although I got the medical report from my doctor it just said "third party report to doctor" and didn''t disclose the nature of the call or the person involved.
The reason for this is Data Protection Act and that when a party makes a disclosure that a person is mentally insane that that third party is protected in law as the insane/mentally unstable often attack the person who reports them.
In the end after 2 years of no joy and three mental evaluations by mental health team social services managed to get into my health records and were able to confirm that my ex did phone the doctors and attempt to get me committed.
Peoples medical records are most definitely private and spouses are not allowed to produce medical records without the consent of the other party.
I don''t know what your wife is hoping to acheive by submitting your medical record to court but I would just advise a little caution as courts have seen most things and unless it is really going to cause a problem do you really need another court hearing and an injunction against her?
I have submitted my medical reports and they are colourful but I am not a danger to anyone nor am a bad parent by inference - my drinking is mentioned, my depression and anxiety, my medications for those condictions and other issues that are on my medical records that I wouldn''t like to talk about on an internet forum.
