Our client had been issued a caution for Actual Bodily Harm (ABH). ABH is on a list of offences that will always be disclosed on both an enhanced and a standard DBS certificate.
The caution had been issued in the context of an acrimonious separation, and the incident had come about due a period of acute stress and provocation.
Our client was working in a regulated sector, and being the sole career and provider for her family, meant the caution was having a devastating impact.
On reviewing the evidence we were able to identify errors in the client’s case which meant that the caution had been improperly issued.
After preparing carefully drafted legal representations, the police agreed to delete the client’s caution from the PNC and also her biometric data.
We have extensive experience in applying for the deletion of police cautions in relation to many different police forces.
Along with applying for the deletion of police cautions, we are also able to assist with the deletion of PNC arrest records, community resolutions, harassment PINs, Penalty Notices for Disorder (PNDs) and local police records held on the Police National Database (PND).
Along with applying for the deletion of police records, we can also assist with challenging DBS disclosures on both standard and enhanced DBS certificates. Our lawyers also have extensive experience in challenging DBS barring decisions; both appealing existing barrings, or resisting a new barring application.
We can also assist with applying for the removal of online records, such as unfavourable news articles under the right to be forgotten (the right to erasure).
Also if you, or a loved one, has received a restraining order, will will be able to assist in its removal or amendment.
