Can STBX husband keep kids from new BF due to past criminal history?

Mr. Conway has given you sound advice. Do not agree to anything without benefit of legal counsel. If this matter is put to the judge to decide, you will need a good record of your boyfriend's criminal history and rehabilitation so start gathering that information now. Meanwhile, you are wise to delay introducing the children to your boyfriend as that will make clear to the judge that you are putting the children first and also gives you more time to assess his character. Best of luck to you.
Please hire a lawyer immediately. You do not have to agree to the request. But if your husband insists, this is an issue that will end up being decided by the judge. You want to make the strongest possible showing. To do that, you will need a lawyer.
Depending upon your situation, you may be able to get the court to order your husband to pay some portion of your legal fees.
