Hi there, I'll be quick as am at work.
I can't substantially answer your question but the best advice I can offer is to be honest from the beginning.
After you have applied or "expressed an interest" (different LAs and agencies do things differently) a Social Worker will pay you an initial visit and sepend a couple of hours covering all essentials before they take it any further. This is the stage that you need to flag up anything that you feel may impede your application. That way, then can look into it early on (saves everybody wasting time) and hopefully reassure you. The agencies and LAs value honesty, so explaining your concerns early on will go down well. I expect that each case is assessed individually and they will look at factors like how long ago it was and how finances have been managed since.

Good luck!

Hi Penny

I agree totally what calypso has told you , honesty up front is so so important. During the home study visits, your whole life is discussed and viewed and it is all about building a profile of you so the SWs get a big picture of you as a couple , what values, beliefs, what you can offer and whether you can sup[port a child who has had a pretty grim start in life.

Sometimes I felt god is this worth it ... and by god it was, we now have beautfiul 6 yr old girl, who has completed our family....

when looking at your finances, they need to ensure that you can provide a stable home and provide family needs, not to ensure you have ££££ in the Bank cause we certainly didnt, we just ensured that me giving up work for 10 months we would survive.

Wishing you all the luck in the world
