Court Ordered Drug and Alcohol Testing
Child Custody Drug and Alcohol Testing
Court-ordered drug and/or alcohol tests may be included in a custody or visitation agreement. If an ex-spouse or co-parent has a history of drug or alcohol abuse, custody and visitation agreements may require that drug tests be taken during (or after) custodial periods, or just before visitation. A positive test can result in a lost visitation, while a pattern of positive drug or alcohol tests can even cause a complete removal of parental rights.
Probation and/or Parole
Courts often order a series of drug tests as a condition of pre-trial services or probation/parole. Drug Testing varies based on the offense of the individual and the determination of the court. Commonly ordered tests include 5 panel, 10 panel, urine alcohol, or EtG alcohol screenings, which can detect commonly abused street and prescriptions drugs or alcohol.
DUI/DWI Drug and Alcohol Testing
Arrests and/or convictions for DUI or DWI often result in court-ordered drug or alcohol tests, even for pre-trial services. Although jurisdictions vary, many courts require a DUI or DWI Drug and Alcohol Test to ensure that the individual remains free from the use of substances while waiting for trial, or after being convicted of a drunk driving offense.
