As you probably know, a criminal history can affect your parental rights over your child. The judge always has the child’s best interests and safety at heart. A judge will look at the offense, how old you were at the time, what your sentence was, how long ago the crime was committed, and how you’ve behaved since.
Just because you have a criminal history does not mean you automatically lose parental rights and custody, it just means its taken into consideration. This might not turn out in your favor, but it could!
So, don’t stress that you have a criminal history that is 5 years old. Stress that you are mature and responsible. Stress that you have and will continue to stay out of trouble. Stress that you are a good parent who loves their child.
