I am stressing here, i already have a dbs for my current job but have applied for another job and need a new dbs. I know i am clear on the police national computer and barred lists but my ex husband last year, when he was arrested for harassment towards me he said to our local police that i was horrible to him and he is playing the verbal, emotional, physical abuse card, none of it is true, it was actually other way round, hence why i left.
The police never spoke to me about it or any other allegations he is supposed to of reported. Will this show on my dbs.

No only sentences that haven’t been spent )or a list of sentences that will never be spent) are on dbs checks

Standard DBS checks show details of spent and unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings held on police records.

Enhanced DBS checks show the same information as standard checks, plus any additional information held by local police considered relevant to the role in question.

Enhanced with barred lists checks show the same information as Enhanced checks, but also include a check of the DBS barred lists.

I would of thought that the police would of spoke to me if it was an official allegation or they were going to hold on record, my ex is a nasty man, and caused me all sorts of stress when i left including threatening my family, harassment towards me, threatening suicide.

My dbs has completed stage 1, 2 and 3 and went to 4 yesterday, on average how long are they taking. I should add it was only completed online on monday.

Mine took from 19th December to 25th Jan but that was with a 10 day break for Christmas and New Year. Probably be ready within a week or so, you can always ring them and ask, if you have the reference number. They were very helpful when I rang to ask why it was taking so long.
If you weren't cautioned or reprimanded by the police in relation to your exH's accusations, nothing is going to show up, so don't worry.

I never even got spoke to by police, like my message earlier he was and is still nasty, aggressive, threatening, controling and got arrested for harassment towards me.

I had a nasty ex who had me arrested three times on malicious untrue accusations. Three nights in police cells ill never get back. But none of which showed up on my enhanced dbs.
He also ended up with a harassment conviction, which I think made a difference to my police record.
