What relationship is your step father's wife to you?

In most cases, your stepfather's wife is your mother. If your stepfather is no longer married to your mother, and has married someone else, then that person is not related to you (unless you count "step-stepmother") and, assuming the marriage ended in divorce, he is now your ex-stepfather. However, if your stepfather is your legal guardian, or has adopted you, it may be convenient to consider his wife to be your stepmother.

Could a stepfather get custody of your 2 girls if something should happen to you you have full custody and their biological father has a criminal history?

In order for the stepfather to gain custody in the event of the mother's death, there would first have to be a number of circumstances. If the father is no longer in jail, has a job, home, and a means to provide the children a safe, stable environment, he would likely be the one to get custody. Having a criminal history doesn't necessarily make a parent unfit. But if he were to sign consent for the stepfather to adopt the children, then the stepfather would get custody.But if the stepfather has not adopted the children, there is also the fact of grandparents, aunts and uncles, in addition to the father, who would possibly try to get custody if the stepfather has not already adopted the children.The best thing to do would be to talk to an attorney and find out what your options are. You should also talk to your family and let them know your wishes should something happen to you.
