My ex is dating a felon
How much weight they give to your prior history will depend on a number of factors including: If you have a criminal history and are in a child custody dispute, the judge will want to know the identity and relationship of your prior victim.
If your conviction involves an emotional or psychological injury to one of your own children, the court can, and usually will, impose limitations on your custody and visitation rights.
Did he go out to buy an ounce or two of grass, and got busted in the wrong sting? Was he a mule and transporting several kilos of cocaine across international borders? He deserves someone who can see the past he is actively leaving behind.
The person who sells meth to school kids is very different from the person who went to jail because he was driving from one state to another with a two ounce head bag. Are you the kind of person who would treat both of those people (the guy selling meth to schoolkids, and the guy driving with two ounces of grass) as if they were the same exact kind of person, just because both had been charged with drug felonies? You want to know if you can trust a guy who 6 years ago was convicted and jailed over an unspecified drug charge, who has gone through rehab, going back to school and getting his life on track, and apparently has stayed out of trouble since he has gotten out.
My ex is dating a guy convicted of assault of a family member 2 times, drug charges multiple times and other convictions. His convictions date back to 1994-2012, ten charges total. If she's just dating him, you can ask the court to order her not to have him around the children. You really need to talk to a good divorce lawyer and get some assistance. If you are in New Jersey, call me and I will assist. Simply put, you will want to hire an attorney to review this.
If this con is living with her, that is one consideration.
Custody is the right of a parent to participate in important child-rearing decisions such as residence, health care, education and religious training.
Courts strive to provide for the welfare and best interests of the child; they will uphold a parent’s rights to participate in the child’s life when the felony did not involve action that caused direct harm to the child.
The court will give more weight to convictions that involved domestic violence and drug/alcohol abuse.Meeting someone who's been imprisoned for a serious crime is often another matter, however.And getting into a relationship with an ex-convict can seem like a big red flag. There are three major questions to ask before letting a guy go from one ball and chain to another kind entirely.For myself I think it would depend on what the crime was.
Married, single or somewhere in the middle, people break laws every day.
Anyone who marries such a person is also going to have to deal with those limitations that are imposed on your partner/spouse by the state. Yes the felony can follow the partner/spouse around, but that also don't mean they can't become a productive member of society.
