We, the undersigned, request legislation that if a parent has been found guilty or plead guilty in court, or if DYFS aka Child Protective Services (or a similar organization in another state) or NJ Cares (or a similar institution in another state that works with the courts) has substantiated sexual abuse, that said parent forfeits their "right" to visitation with their minor children.

Some background information:

My oldest daughter was raped by her step father at the age of four. I involved Child Protective Services, the prosecutor, and took my daughter for counseling. Now I'm learning that the man that raped my oldest daughter may still end up with visitation for the daughter we had together, my youngest daughter. How can this man's parental rights outweigh my innocent child's rights to safety? Please help me protect Cassie and children in positions similar to Cassie's.
