Simply being arrested does not prevent a person from adopting a child. However, many felony convictions that involve allegations of child abuse, domestic violence, or violence can prevent an adoption.

Given the fact-specific nature of these cases, it is best to talk to an attorney to figure out whether your husband can adopt.
