hi Jimmy

 

I would imagine one of the main reasons for any problems would be if they needed extra info.

 

hopefully they won't. good luck

Hi, ours was six weeks roughly! I would guess the reason it would be refused is if the criteria was not met. Good luck!

They now looking a police report!! How long would this normally take? My hubby has a drink driving offence from 10years ago and an assult charge from 7years ago, which we told them about on application just hope it dosnt go against us.... Should we be worried :(

No not really. A police check takes no time at all, you can fast track it to a couple of days as well if you want.
