    Answered . That argument can be used but may not go far if the man is no longer required to register and the conviction was nearly 20 years ago. However, there are other factors to take into consideration and you really must discuss your case in detail with an experienced child custody attorney rather than relying on any answer you might rercieve here. We simply do not have sufficient information to provide you and "odds." Consult with several lawyers and hire the one you like the best.

    Answered . You have every right to be concerned about your child's welfare. Although your believe your ex is living with a convicted sex offender who doesn't need to register, I would highly encourage you to seek out a capable family law attorney who can represent you. Understanding your concerns about your daughter's well-being is key to moving forward and taking the right steps, which means hiring an attorney. Good luck!
