Child Custody & Substance Abuse

Handling Substance Abuse Issues in Yolo County Child Custody Cases

California courts always consider what is in the children’s best interest when it comes to deciding on complicated child custody cases. For the most part, we find the answer to that question includes the courts recommendation that the child continues to develop a close relationship with both parents. Occasionally though, Substance abuse and addiction can alter the court’s decision, when they find that one parent’s ability to provide a healthy and safe environment for the child is being effected by evidence of a parent’s substance addiction problem.

How drug and alcohol abuse can affect your child custody and visitation rights in Davis

Alcohol and drug addictions are often responsible for conditions that are harmful to children, such as domestic violence, child abandonment and neglect. At JB Dath Law we are well prepared to handle such difficult situations and have a high success rate in litigating these cases. We often will advocate for supervised visitation to protect your children and, in the most serious cases, seek restraining orders if you or your children are being abused by a loved one with a drug or alcohol problem.

Client Testimonials

"I would recommend JB Dath Law to anyone expecting results. Jonathan took on my case in the middle of a custody hearing, and completely turned around the outcome of my case. With the fate of the custody of my son on the line, he worked around the clock to bring himself up to speed on my trial, and came into the courtroom ready to go. Not only did he stop things from spiraling out of control, but he ended up securing me full physical and legal custody of my child. He continues to provide top notch services, and his knowledge of the courts and the systems is second to none in Yolo County. The only complaint I have is that I didn't retain his services from day one!"
