Alcohol and/or Drug Abuse in Divorce and Custody Cases in Ohio

| Sep 25, 2014 | OVI |

Does your child’s parent struggle with alcohol or drug abuse? Have you been accused of having an alcohol or drug abuse problem?

During a divorce or child custody proceeding, one of the difficult issues before a Court is addressing a parent’s struggle with alcohol and/or drugs, as these issues could affect a parent’s mental and physical health, as well as the parent’s ability to care for children. A parent’s mental and physical health is one of the many factors a Court will weigh when determining custody and parenting time.

Allegations of a parent struggling with alcohol and/or drugs can be very serious in a divorce or child custody proceeding. These allegations may result in a loss of custody, supervised visitations, or even loss of visitations.

If you are going through a divorce or custody proceeding and you have been accused of abusing alcohol and/or drugs, or if you believe your child’s other parent struggles with alcohol and/or drugs, it may be necessary to either prove or disprove the allegations. One of the best ways to do this is for a drug test or for a drug and alcohol assessment. It may be necessary to file a Motion with the Court requesting this type of test or assessment.
