When Might Family Law Drug and Alcohol Testing Be Required?
Family law testing for drugs and alcohol may be required by various professional bodies involved in child custody cases, care proceedings or child protection cases. In cases regarding divorce and children, a dispute may arise during the process of discussions involving the custody of children. In these cases drug and alcohol testing may be sought if there has been a substance abuse claim against a parent fighting for custody or visitation. Tests may be sought by family law solicitors or mediators during the stage of family law mediation, or requested by the family court during court proceedings. In cases relating to child protection, social services may seek drug and alcohol testing if child welfare claims have been made regarding suspected parental substance misuse.
Why is Drug and Alcohol Testing in Family Law Cases Important?
Family law drug and alcohol testing is important to ensure child protection from the detrimental effects of parental substance misuse and to ensure they have a quality of life they deserve. In addition it is also important to enable parents the opportunity to get the help and support they need and begin rehabilitation treatment. Doing the right thing by the child is the main priority, and where possible parent and child relationships are sought to be maintained. Drug and alcohol testing assists in these efforts and in such cases abstinence monitoring testing may be required to assess a parent’s recovery i.e. if a visitation case is being reassessed.
