Russell Knight is a family law attorney in Chicago, IL. Suddenly, your child is now dealing with a third adult who you know nothing about. While any criminal past can be a cause for concern, a sex crime means your children could be exposed to a sex offender. This allows the other parent to raise an objection to the sex offender being near the children. For example, they could ask a judge to limit or end the parenting time of the parent who is living with the sex offender.
A judge will make a decision about the parenting time based on the best interest of the child. However, the law says that a judge must presume that both parents are fit to have parenting time. To restrict parenting time, you will need to show that your child spending time with your ex will endanger their physical, mental, moral, or emotional health. But the judge is required to consider the fact that your ex wants to live with a sex offender.
The judge needs to consider the nature of the offense and what treatment the person has gone through. Criminal sex offenses are a serious matter. Failure to address the exposure of a sex offender to the children could result in the sex offender being allowed to have further continued time with the children in the future. So, if you have an objection to your children being around a sex offender, head to court with that objection as soon as possible.

The investigation, which lasted 16 months, looked into the link between dating apps and sexual assaults. Match Group first agreed to screen for registered sex offenders in after a woman using the platform matched with a six-time convicted rapist who allegedly raped her on their second date.
As of right now, Match Group checks the information of its paid subscribers on Match. According to a Match Group spokesperson, the reason why a screening system can not be implemented comes down to information the app collects from its users, or lack thereof. A fake name is all it may take for a sex offender to pass by the screening stage.
