Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
Absolutely. The conviction is a material change in circumstances, that would make visitation with the father dangerous to the health and well being of the children.
In order to ask the court for a modification of visitation rights, there needs to be a significant and material change in the circumstances. We have that here.
You can ask the court to grant you a change because of the health and wellbeing of the children would be put in jeopardy, evidenced by this conviction.
That being said, you need to contact an attorney in your area that deals with custody and visitation cases. Go to www.lawyers.com or www.legalmatch.com to find an attorney in your area.
