We have again had a police caution removed for a client. The caution was again issued in relation to a domestic dispute.
Police Caution Removal Solicitors
The police caution was issued for Actual Bodily Harm (ABH). A caution for ABH will stay on a criminal record forever and will never become “protected”.
This will mean it will be disclosed on an enhanced and standard Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check certificate forever.
This is brilliant news! I can’t believe it. Thank you and your team for all the hardwork to get it cleared, this has given my marriage a second chance.
A lesser assault offence is common assault (otherwise know as assault by battery or assault and battery), a police caution for common assault will remain on a standard DBS check for 6 years and may continue to be disclosed on an enhanced DBS certification after 6 years.
Work and Immigration and the Police Caution
A police caution will cause significant problems for anyone who works, or hopes to work, in a regulated sector.
Under current UKBA rules a caution will automatically bar you from applying for UK citizenship for 3 years.
Can I remove a Police Caution?
You can remove a police caution if it has been issued incorrectly. We have successfully removed police cautions or had DBS certificates amended for many clients. We have had success at removing criminal records after unsuccessful applications by other solicitors.
Our recent client was prevented from continuing to work in the health care sector, now that the police caution is removed they will be able to return to work.
