Police Caution Removed for Businessman – now able to apply for British Citizenship

We have again successfully had a police caution removed for a client.

Police Cautions and Immigration

The client, a foreign national, had had his business premises searched by trading standards officers. In the course of the search an allegation of assault was made by the trading standards officers.

The client was represented by the duty solicitor at interview and he subsequently accepted a police caution.

Criminal Record Clearance Solicitors

We were instructed to apply to remove the caution as it was impeding the client’s ability to apply for British citizenship. The police caution was having a devastating impact on him as he had built up a successful business in England and risked having to return abroad.

After we reviewed the case we advised the client that he had a strong case to argue for the police caution to be removed.

Police Cautions removed

Within two months of applying to the police, they not only removed the police caution but also agreed to remove all record of the incident including the client’s bio-metric data and fingerprints.

If your career or future is being hampered by a police caution then please get in touch. We have had many police cautions removed for previous clients and also have successfully challenged the disclosure of information on DBS certificates.
