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

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.

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Saia & Piatt, Inc. have experience in dealing with divorce and custody matters that involve allegations of problems with alcohol and/or drugs. Please feel free to contact our offices for a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
