Courts are loathe to place children in unsafe homes. If the mother married a sex offender, that should weigh heavily in your favor if you seek custody of your child. Further, the court may be willing to restrict visitation as a result of this other individual's presence, as the individual's sex offender status may place the child at risk.You would have to seek custody in Colorado, as your child resides there. You will want to retain a Colorado attorney to assist you with this effort. Please remember to click accept so that I will receive credit for my time and effort spent responding to your question.
