    You could try to get the custody order modified. Of course, there is a fundamental question. Was this charge from 10 years ago when he was 19 and the girl was 16 or 17? Or is it recent and the man is clearly an adult and was acting as a pedophile. If the former, you probably won't have much luck. With the latter you may. Talk with a local attorney about the issue.

    Well, that is disgusting. and your child may be at risk. You may be able to get custody of the child if the Judge decides that is needed to protect the baby. Before you do anything, please talk to a divorce attorney in your area. This is serious. These legal issues will affect you and your family for many years. You may cause great harm to yourself and your children, and may lose a lot of money, if you do the wrong thing.
