Convictions of certain crimes cause courts to curtail or terminate parental custody rights.A parent convicted of child abuse, child endangerment or a sexually related felony involving a child probably will lose custodial rights, and probably will have limitations placed on visitation.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.
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.Likewise, violent crimes such as murder, and particularly murder of the child’s other parent, mandate termination of parental custody rights; courts use these felonies to establish that the parent is unfit.Depending on the nature of the felony, the length of time since the felony, the occurrence of additional felonies or criminal activity, and other mitigating matters, the courts can and often do limit custody and visitation.Some forums can only be seen by registered members.
