My wife is having an affair with a man who is a convicted sex offender.
He served time in prison and now that he is out, my wife wants to kick me out of the marital home and have him around our children.
What should I do to protect myself and my children from my wife’s boyfriend?
While I am not licensed to practice law in your jurisdiction, I can provide you with general divorce help for men. I encourage you to speak with a mens divorce attorney in your area for specific legal advice on divorce.
If a divorce has already been filed, you may be able to request an order from the court for no contact between your children and the convicted sex offender. There may be conditions of his release that may limit his ability to have contact with children as well.
If a divorce has not been filed you would want to inquire as to when you can obtain the soonest possible hearing. Where I practice, we have the option to file a request for a temporary order hearing and can request expedited hearing dates in special circumstances.
Child Custody Laws:
Depending on your state’s laws, and whether a divorce action has been filed, you may be able to retake possession of your home and to exercise custody over your children by keeping them in your control.
I highly recommend you consult with a qualified divorce lawyer for men who can give you specific advice on divorce and actions you should take in your case.
