Thank you for your further posts.
I can only repeat the advice I gave you in the previous response to your post. The social worker will carry out enquiries from police, probation relating to your now former partner. If you are no longer together and he is not to be risk assessed, then the assessment might just be about your ability to protect your child. Alternatively, as you have only recently separated from your partner children services may well still want to know the level of risk he might pose to your child, since the possibility remains that you might get back together.
The best thing for you, I think, is to ask the social worker about how the risk assessment will be carried out, the social worker should have given this information anyway. Different local authorities have different processes for carrying out an assessment. It could be that there is a multi-agency risk assessment conference (MARAC) depending on the nature and severity of the offence committed by your ex-partner.
There are special risk assessment tools used by social workers and other professionals in a risk assessment and the social worker should be able to give you full details.

Whether or not your child will remain with in his father’s care, will depend on the outcome of any assessment of you and the father and final decision will be made by the court.
