It is highly unlikely that you would be successful, as they have to do what is in the "best interests" of the children.

There is something missing from your story. Social services (DFS) does not randomly call around to find people you know and then threaten them. If your friends are being told this information, its because (in all likelihood) they called DFS so see what is going on. DFS blew it by talking about your case with outsiders, unless perhaps they were witnesses in the original matter. Yes, DFS will look very poorly on your boyfriend. DFS will not like at all that he is around any kids, including his own. If the conviction was for any kind of sex offense, this attitude is not going to change any time soon.
If he is not required to register, you may wish to tough it out until he is off probation and parole and move to a new area that is unaware of the past.
You should not be volunteering any information to anyone without first talking with an attorney.
Suing the state is a losing proposition. You need to get really good advice on how to get off the state's radar and get through the boy friend's situation with the least fuss and muss.
Like many attorneys we will sit down and review your situation with you without charge.
Your best bet is to find a good lawyer who provides advice on this kind of issue on a regular basis and review your specific facts; the lawyer will be able to give you an analysis of the law and your options.
By the way, some attorneys sell "unbundled" or "limited" legal services where you pay for just what you need and can afford. For example, some attorneys will prepare letters for you to sign, legal documents, or sell the paperwork for the court filings; then you can proceed on your own, but knowing that your paperwork is correct and having a road map as to how to proceed. Or who will attend a hearing for a flat fee even if they are not handling the whole case. Neighborhood Law Office is such a firm.
At Neighborhood Law Office we never charge for an initial consultation, and at that meeting we can go through your specific facts and give you options. Please call us anytime for an appointment.

You raise a number of very serious concerns. I am not sure what you mean when you say there is a "stay." A stay from what? It would make a great deal of sense for you to seek counsel -- perhaps in Southern COlorado -- to sit down and let that professional digest all of the concerns you have raised.
