Medico Legal Testing

Medico-legal 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 custody or visitation. Normally in medico-legal cases a hair sample would be tested as it provides the longest detection window.

At Randox Testing Services we provide quality hair testing for professionals within the medico-legal sector. By utilising accredited methods, we provide the most secure facilities and robust analytical systems to carry out hair testing. Upon receipt of sample, we guarantee accurate results in just 3 working days.

Testing for drugs and alcohol may be required by various bodies within the medico-legal sector, such as those involved in child custody cases, care proceedings or child protection cases. Tests may be sought by family law solicitors or mediators during the stage of family law mediation, or requested by the family court during proceedings. In cases relating to child protection, social services may seek drug and alcohol testing if child welfare claims have been made regarding parental substance misuse.

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 in these efforts and in such cases abstinence monitoring testing may be required to assess a parent’s recovery.
