what about if she granted full custody can he still have visitation rights or would it have to be supervised?
This is a very fact specific question, meaning that the answer could be very different depending on all of the facts and not just considering some of the facts. The judge may look at whether the father was actually convicted of the criminal charges, whether the children were present at the time of the alleged crime(s), whether there was actual violence (e.g. was the rape at gunpoint or knife point, what type of personal and criminal history does the father have, etc. Again, I strongly suggest that an attorney is given the opportunity to review all of the pertinent facts and advise accordingly.
