Child Custody/Visitation Laws Applicable to Registered Persons

[ – 12/1/19]

In my 2016 Jobs and Welfare Survey of 307 registered persons, I found that registrants in this survey were less likely to be married than the general population (34.43% of Regs vs 49% of gen) and less likely to have kids (54.93 Regs. vs 74% Gen. pop.). However, this still means many people forced to register on America’s sex offense registries have families. This makes parental rights an important topic for, registered citizens many of whom are afraid that registry status can be used against them.

PURPOSE OF REPORT: This list covers state statutes pertaining to parental rights or the right to reside with minors for registered persons. Parental rights generally mean custody and/or visitation rights. This report also covers state statutes covering the right of registered persons to live in households with minors or have unsupervised visits with children.

    There are many RPs who have never and/or would never hurt their own child…. All the negative “Assumptions” sadly astonish me.

    I should add that Oklahoma just passed a law that requires registrants in the state, who live with a minor child, to report to the Oklahoma Department of Human Services hotline.

    Both 57 O.S. 2011, Section 584, and 57 O.S. 2011, Section 590 contain the following statement:

    B. It shall be unlawful for any person who is required to
    register pursuant to the Sex Offenders Registration Act for any
    offense in which a minor child was the victim to reside with a minor
    child or establish any other living accommodation where a minor
    child resides. Provided, however, the person may reside with a
    minor child if the person is the parent, stepparent or grandparent
    of the minor child and the minor child was not the victim of the
    offense for which the person is required to register. Any person
    subject to the provisions of the Sex Offenders Registration Act who
    resides with a minor child as the parent, stepparent or grandparent
    of the minor child, provided the minor child was not the victim of
    the offense for which the person is required to register, must
    report to the statewide centralized hotline of the Department of
    Human Services the name and date of birth of any and all minor
    children residing in the same household and the offenses for which
    the person is required to register pursuant to the Sex Offenders
    Registration Act within three (3) days of intent to reside with a
    minor child.

    RCs are not afraid the Registry will be used against them !!!
    HELLO !!!
    If all the restrictions cause every problem imaginable, what do you think is being applied in Court, Society etc…example… If little Sally has friends and they find out out such and such RC what kind of Legal, Social nightmare insues, well if this becomes known to Authorities that an RC is this or that in little Sallys Community,,,,Well Hell…! the local Scandal alone would RUN anyone out of town !
    Lets say, loss of work even temporary is a serious issue with Competence, or Welfare or a number of other Reasons the Courts could bring up/use against RC…..what about going on field trips, or sports or Bible studies or any aspect of life that can affect/impact Visitation, Parental Rights, or ANYTHING !!!!!!!!
    Surely its not difficult to see this UNJUST RC LABEL ALONE will hinder, Corrupt and destroy almost any known Defense Strategy and be Completely Against any PARENTAL RIGHTS AN RC HAS FROM THE ONSET OF CUSTODY, VISITATION ETC….
