There is no felony conviction that would, as a matter of law, necessarily preclude you from obtaining custody of your grandchildren. You should consider petitioning the court for custody, in loco parentis (a parental stand-in). As a grandparent, you would certainly have in loco parentis standing before a Family court - permitting the court to hear your petition for custody. That said, CPS may still object for basically any conceivable reason (if your CPS is anything like Pennsylvania's CYS), including your conviction. That said though, CPS should theoretically be concerned with keeping families together whenever possible and there does not seem to be much logical correlation between a white collar crime conviction and your ability to provide appropriate care for your grandchildren. You should speak with a family law attorney as soon as possible.
