As a Jacksonville Child Custody Attorney I have seen many instances where a mother or father is concerned that their child’s other parent is abusing drugs or alcohol. I have unfortunately also seen instances where a parent is in fact abusing drugs or alcohol in the presence of the child.
A way to combat this is getting an order from the court requiring the parent or parents to submit to a drug test. The presence of drugs or lack thereof can be a huge factor in determining child custody cases.
If you are concerned your co-parent may be abusing drugs or alcohol while caring for your child contact a Jacksonville Child Custody Attorney today to learn more about this and related child custody issues.
