DUI Arrests & Child Custody Implications

If you have custody of your children, or are involved in a dispute over custody arrangements, a DUI will give the court some reason to take a long look at your fitness to parent. If the noncustodial parent can prove there is concern about chemical dependency, or the child is in danger because of repeat offenses, it is possible to sue for a reversal of custody. Even if you are an excellent parent in every respect, the issue of child safety becomes the court’s primary concern. For the party fighting to get custody or retain custody of a child, a DUI can have a very detrimental impact and fodder for a change.
