boyfriend with criminal past
      #613294 - 12/19/09 05:46 PM

My wife has had a history of affairs which we tried to work through, she went on a cruise with a girlfriend came back with a boyfriend. More then I could handle we decided to seperate. While trying to work out the agreements she ups and rents an apt and says bye. Not a problem but a few days later she is setting up house with the new guy. My problem is this guy has a criminal past from Domestic violence to charges for drug manufacturing and posession and I do not want him around my kids. Their answer is he has been through counceling and is involved in church and is healed. He has only been clean and out of jail for 2 years and all the while fight the domestic issues with a girl friend and their child and is married to another women but seperated for a year. My ex thinks it is not a problem but me I just cant't bring myself to feel good about all this. Is their any way to keep him away from my kids, they do not want to meet him period and they do not even know about the drug issues

Well you can certainly ask that the kids not be introduced to him whilel the divorce is pending. It's possible (probable even) that it will be granted, but unless you can find proof that he will be a danger to your kids it will be hard to keep her from introducing them once the divorce is final. I can't imagine a judge granting something permanant.

It is a legitimate concern. However, unless there is some information that hhe is a present danger to the child, restricting contact is unlikely.

find out why EXACTLY he was not allowd visitation with his own son--did he agree to it or did a judge order it because he posed a specific threat. Find out what that threat is by going to the court house and looking through the case file from his case. Family case are public record. You just have to go to the courthouse/clerk of court & request the case file. They will usually make you go in a "viewing" room & there you can do research.

I thought that family cases were NOT public record because minors were involved?
