Child Custody Drug Testing

Unfortunately, many of us go through a divorce or a break-up where children are involved. Sometimes, one or both partners have a drug or alcohol problem. What happens then?

Drug Testing and Child Custody

If there is a reason to believe one or both partners may have an issue with drugs or alcohol, the courts can request drug testing in a child custody case. The legal standard that justifies a judge ordering a drug test is the often used best interests of the child standard.

If you are a previous drug user, you may be required as part of the child custody agreement to have unannounced random drug testing. You will need a company like US Drug Test Centers to help you with this random scheduling of the unannounced drug or alcohol test.
