Substance abuse programs and child custody

If you suffer from alcohol and/or drug issues, spending some time in rehab can put you on the path to a happier, healthier life. If you're a divorced parent whose substance abuse issues have cost you custody and perhaps even unsupervised visitation rights, completing an inpatient recovery program can help you be the parent your kids need.

Why is supervised visitation ordered?

If a judge has ordered that you have only supervised visitation with your children during or after your divorce, it may seem like a slap in the face. However, it's essential to understand that the purpose of supervised visitation is to protect your children -- not to punish you.

The impact of a parent's alcoholism can last into adulthood

If you're divorcing a spouse who has an alcohol problem, you're understandably concerned about sharing custody of your children and possibly even of letting your co-parent have unsupervised visitation rights. You may have to go to court to prevent your co-parent from having the access they want. If you feel guilty about doing that, don't. A parent with alcohol abuse issues can cause serious short-term and long-term problems for their kids.

Making transitions between homes stress-free for your kids

These days, many divorced parents have shared custody of their children. This gives both parents the opportunity to remain involved in their kids' lives. However, it also typically requires kids to move from one house to another on a schedule that involves switching off every few days, alternating weeks or perhaps spending weekdays with one parent and weekends with the other.
