Default Family Criminality

As the theme for the week definitely seems to be criminal record uncertainty I thought I'd add this; On a bunch of the forms for immigration - even for my BUNAC permit it asks:

'Have you or any member of your family been arrested/charged/convicted of an offence?'

Fortunately (or regrettably) I was a good boy even during the errant bit of my teenage years, and when I wasn't my legs were good enough to gtfo before I got caught doing something slightly naughty. My little brother on the other hand got caught taking my mum's car out in 2006 without permission while he was drunk, without a license, insurance etc. and went straight on at a T-junction into a lamppost.

I've listed this on my app and will do in the future, but wondered if this has any bearing on my own situation with regard to the CIC. I doubt it does but just curious.

Family in the chc sense is spouse and linearly descending..something htat confused me no end the first time i filled in the papers and as a 27 year old i filled in mum, dad and brother as my 'family' like a good little girl....
and then figured they meant spouse and kids!

Exactly. If your brother is not your legal dependent then his peccadillo does not belong in your application. Only the sins of you, your spouse, or your minor children should be mentioned.

Not sure if it helps at all, but with BUNAC - I rang them about this as my big bro has not always been a good boy, and they said it did not matter as th question was aimed at someone travelling with you IE spouse, but in the case of bunac that would not apply.
