Hello, I am writing to ask for help on what laws are and if there is anything I would be able to do. My kids don't know there biological father they are 1 and 2, me and him got in a domestic violence situation when he wasn't living with me and he criminal threatened me and he also harrased me. I got a restraining order and have finally released myself from his emotional hold on myself. The kids didn't know there father granted that he came up once every 2 months. After the restraining order he was granted supervised visitation from the judge. Then the supervisor quit, saying she wouldn't supervise any more due to personal problems, and then he requested to do it a vistation center. This court order to be ordered for visitation at a supervised vistation center was granted in begining of July. He still hasn't contacted the vistation center to even attempt to set up visits. Now he is arrested in allegations against felious sexual assault against victoms who are 12 and 15. He is in jail and from what his Mom says they will be fighting this.

with this felonious sexual assault charge, and the past issues, of me caring for the children, ect. would i be able to terminate rights?

they are going to fight it; she said it takes years to fight and for now he has to sit in jail; a nd once he is convicted he will be in jail from anywhere between 15 years to 30 years? does that make a difference?

The fact is, he has not been convicted of these charges, so until he is, he is presumed innocent, right? Definitely contact a lawyer, as the laws vary from place to place, but I highly doubt an arrest without conviction is going to be grounds for termination of rights.

Get yourself a lawyer and ask them. There are different laws for each state and country.
