The court ordered my ex to undertake a criminal record check. The check has come back but i dont really understand it. Would i be able to get it explained to me by a police officer or something. My solicitor doesnt understand it either. One part says charged/summonsed but there is a part that says appropriate protocal wasnt followed. It doesnt say if he was cautioned, convicted or let go though. The incident happened in 2004 but the report has his up to date address and phone number up untill 2009. He wouldnt be kept track of, and have to submit his details regularly if he wasnt convicted or cautioned would he? i have court in 2 weeks and will be discussing it there but would like to know a bit more about it before then. I am worried about my daughters safety. Can i ask the court to request to see if he is on the sex offenders register? Any help or info much appriciated

Maybe try the Citizen Advice. I think cautions are sealed but convictions ae a matter of public record.

Good Luck

When you fill in the form for a criminal records bureau check you have to give your address etc. for the last several years to allow a proper check to take place. So this is probably why it is on the form.
