  • CONVICTED sex offender wants custody North Carolina

    Ex wants custody of our child. He is a convicted sex offender. Does anyone know of sites I can find info on showing it is in the childs best interest to not be around him. He was convicted of messing with his 5 year old daughter. No longer registered but I have ALL the papers from his conviction (he pled guiltiy) and his warrant.

    He is now married and she knows what he has done AND they have a 4 month old little girl.

      who knows

      He really has had nothing to do with him. Went to court for CS and legal custody. He responded wanting custody. He has not even seen him in a year. Suppose to go to mediation this month.

        i wouldn't worry about it then. unless he can PROVE that the person with custody now is not a good place for the child- not gonna happen. I would ask for supervised visitation based on his past and the fact the child has no relationship due to a yr of absence.

          well

          considering my other kids are
          #1. in college 2nd year and on her own for the most part and doing great
          #2. making a's and b's her senior year and works and helps with scouting stuff
          #3. making a's and b's in 4th grade, in scouts and in an after school club
          #4. the baby... goes camping and everything #3 does with scouts and stuff with school

          I think it would be hard to prove anything but a great inviroment for any of the kids.

          With the conviction he got no rights or visitation to his other kids and I am hoping to use that to keep him away from this one. I am sure they will say altho it happened with the one child it doesnt mean it will happen to another. I am gonna say then why did he not get ANY TYPE of visitation with the other child at the time of his conviction or why he didnt try to get any once he got out of prison?

          Thanks for your time

            Take all the paperwork regarding his criminal record with you to the mediation and don't give in.

                Being a registered sex offender and any time is not something they will say only happened with one child and will not happen with another. There should be quite a few things online you can print out to remid people that sex offenders are the most likely to repeat their crimes.

                It's sounds like he has an abusive personality as well. Don' let him scare you into not going for Child support by threatening to take your baby away.

                  The legal standard in NC for custody is "what is in the best interest of the child." If this guy has not even seen the child in a year there is no way the judge is going to give him custody, unless you are a crack addict or have a meth lab in the nursery or something terrible like that.

                  You may want to consider filing a petition to terminate his parental rights. If he has not seen the child in a year, you probably have grounds for abandonment. Of course, if rights are terminated you lose any child support he may have to pay.

                  Sometimes people will assert a claim for custody in an effort to get some leverage on the issues that are really going to matter, such as child support and visitation. I cannot imagine that a convicted child molestor who has not seen his kid in a year is going to get custody.

                  Stick to your guns at the mediation and don't agree to anything that makes you uncomfortable.

                  Good luck.

                    Thanks

                    I am sticking to my guns like crazy...He is very abusive. I have neighbors and older kids that will be glad to go to court for me. He actually came to my house at 1 in the morning after the baby was born being an -------- (fill it in anyway you want lol).....

                    I know his motive. Its not him its her...Its the money. His wife does NOT want him to have anything to do with any of his kids and has been known to tell him that CS and insurance is enough and he should not do any holidays or bdays...

                    I feel for her because I have a gut feeling that one day she will know what I am going through AFTER her child is molested and she wants him stay away...

                      Considering he molested a sibling to your child/children you could request to have all visitation rights removed. He would still be obligated to pay support but he wouldn't have rights to visit or have a say in the decision making regarding the children...just a thought...

                        That is exactly what I plan on doing. Don't know if they will or not but it wont hurt to ask If they wont then I will ask for supervised visits by professions and NOT his family or friends.

                          There is a Supervised Visitation Network on the internet that helps with referrals and services for Supervised Visitation.

                              Here's one website to start with: http://www.svnetwork.net/

                              They should be able to provide you a starting place of what to put in to the Visitation schedule to ensure properly supervised visits. Sometimes they link to pay services, I just weed through those and go with Federal/State or non-profit provided resources and DIY pieces.
