PETITION: End the use of forms to reporting ex-partners to the Home Office for deportation

Heading

End the use of forms to reporting ex-partners to the Home Office for deportation

Background

The current forms are unfit for purpose and unworkable:
1. They do not ask for contact details making it impossible to check claims or locate person reported.
2. They do not say where they should be sent.
3. They risk being used by abusers to threaten spouses putting vulnerable people at risk.
