Drunk driving and child custody

Those who get behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol may face a number of consequences, whether they have to spend time in prison, suffer damage to their reputation, experience challenges in their career or lose their driving privileges. However, it is important to point out that there are other difficulties associated with DUI charges. For example, someone who is going through a divorce may find that the charges adversely affect their position during a custody dispute. Or, drunk driving charges may lead to the end of a marriage, and a parent who has been charged with DUI may face difficulties during the custody process.

For parents who have been charged with drunk driving, the entire situation can be very overwhelming. Even if someone was barely over the legal limit or drove when they did not know that the amount of alcohol in their system made it illegal for them to take to the road, the consequences may haunt them for years. If you have children and are unsure of how drunk driving charges could affect your future, it is critical to explore all of your legal options and have a clear understanding of which approach to take next.

Our law office realizes how complicated these cases can be, as well as the multiple hardships that people may have to endure when they have been charged with driving drunk. When it comes to custody, every case should be given an individualized approach, and there may be a variety of legal options available to parents in this position.
