Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.

Does your employer require a certificate from the Hungarian Police or just a UK criminal check?

Just the UK criminal check

Thanks. There are two ways in which you can obtain a criminal records check in the UK. Which one you choose depends upon whether your employer intends to carryout the check for you or whether they have asked you to obtain a certificate yourself.

If your employer intends to carry out a check for you they can only do so if your job involves working in healthcare, working with children or with the elderly. If it doesn't then your employer cannot obtain a check. If it does they can apply to the governments DBS service to apply for a check. You will then be sent a request by the service to confirm you consent to the check and will be sent a copy of the result which you then give to your employer.

If you are not working in one of the above roles then you can obtain a disclosure yourself by using the government disclosure service. Confusingly the service is called "Disclosure Scotland" but it applies to the whole of the UK (except Northern Ireland). You can request the disclosure using the following link - it costs £25 and is usually completed in a few days:

Does the above answer all your questions? If it does, I should be very grateful if you would kindly take a moment to click a rating for my service to you today. Your feedback is important to me. If there is anything else I can help with please reply back to me though

I have a situation that is causing me slight concern. A
Hi, I have a situation that is causing me slight concern. A while ago I set up a fake email account under a completely made up name. I then used Gumtree to post a job advertisement in which I got a few responses from. I ended up speaking to a nice girl who I eventually met up with one evening and we got a long really well, however to cut a long story short I decided against taking this any further and gave her the cold shoulder after she was bombarding me with emails pressuring me for the job. I then only today accidentally emailed her from my fake email account (email was meant for someone else) and she promptly replied telling me that she has done some investigation and believes I am impersonating someone who recently died and that all my previous correspondence has been sent to the police and that I am a fraud! I have no idea who she is referring to and if I did pick the same name as someone who has passed away then it is a complete coincidence! Do I have anything to worry about here? I can't see I have done much wrong? I have deleted the email account I was using in fear I might get a knock on the door shortly! … read more
