I don't know the law on this, but it would seem to me that the issue should only be IF the crimes were committed after the child was born or after the seperation.

For example, say 'Joe' was a drug dealer in the past. If a woman marries him marries or hooks up with him and makes a baby with him while knowing what he does and living off the proceeds of past drug sales, I don't think it's right for her then to say Joe shouldn't have custody or visitation because he was a criminal. To me, she could be the worse parent because she picked that loser. If she got dumped for a newer model and now wants to say Joe isn't fit to parent when she condoned it before, I think she should be out of luck.

If Joe quit selling years ago and cleaned up his act and NOW she wants to use it against him, I think she's out of luck.

If she left Joe BECAUSE of escalating violence with ongoing drug sales, that's different.

If Joe just started selling now, he's in trouble because she has a valid arguement.

In your case, the illegal activity is all in the past. She knew about it and chose to make a baby with you. I don't think her arguement is a winning one and I believe it SHOULD piss the judge off.
