Is Substance Abuse The Reason For Your Divorce?
Approximately 10 percent of the population struggles with substance abuse and addiction issues. It is often an underlying cause of problems in a marriage, and cited frequently as a reason for divorce.
Whether you are the person struggling or your spouse, addiction can complicate divorce and often leads to special considerations. For example, you may have trouble getting a response from a spouse who continues to use marijuana, alcohol or another drug excessively.
Child Custody Disputes When One Parent Is Alleged To Be Unfit
Many divorces involving allegations of substance abuse involve contentious child custody proceedings, with one party arguing the safety of children is at stake, and the other arguing that the case against them is false or misleading.
Because child custody disputes can be incredibly stressful on all involved, it pays to have an attorney on your side familiar with these difficult situations who has a history of finding solutions.
In these situations, the court will examine evidence to determine the best interests of the children. An experienced child custody dispute lawyer can help you gather evidence that truly shows what is best for your children.
