Yes but it may depend on the underlying conviction and what's in your children's best interest.

No, you will have to prove an Article 8 Family offense in order to get an OP.

You need to know what the conviction was for and whether it was for violence.

If your kids are in danger, you could file an emergency petition to change custody and/or ask that he not be allowed around your children.
