Will a fifth degree drug felony from 2006 stop my husband from adopting my 3 kids from a previous marriage? Posted on March 20, 2011

My ex has a documented history of DV, and has just signed consent forms for my husband to adopt my three children. Unfortunately my husband has a fifth degree felony drug conviction from 2006(before we met). Can this stop him from adopting my children? All three kids have a loving relationship with this man, and he has completely turned his life around. The whole family wants this adoption to go through, I am just so afraid that his past will interfere. My lawyer says as long as he can show that he is no longer leading the kind of lifestyle as before, that it shouldn't be a major issue, but there are no guarantees. My husband has filed for an expungement, but we are still waiting on a court date....
