How does being a sex offender or living with a sex offender effect a parent's right to custody and visitation?

The Court may modify or terminate a prior custody order if either a parent is convicted of a felony that requires him or her to register as a sex offender or lives with a person who is required to register as same. There is a rebuttable presumption that the child is at significant risk of harm to either be in the custody of a parent with such a conviction or if that parent's resides with another person with such a conviction. There are mitigating factors to rebut the presumption including, but not limited to, whether the other parent is also a registered sex offender. I strongly encourage parents to run the names of new significant others. If you need help doing so and protecting your children, contact Covina attorney, Paul Eads today.
