Family Law attorneys and practitioners know all too well how often alcohol is an issue in child custody cases. The view of alcohol abuse in the United States has also been evolving.

Alcohol abuse was once perceived as an individual failure. While some stigma remains today, through science and public education, it has become well-known that substance abuse is a disease, not a moral failing. It is also a common occurrence.

In all 50 states, the child's best interest remains the well-known cornerstone consideration in Family Law. The analysis involved in determining these best interests is a balancing test where courts can consider any factors that impact the child's safety, health, development, and overall well-being.
