  • When one spouse has a substance abuse problem, whether it’s alcohol or drugs, it’s very important to protect children and ensure their safety.
  • To do this, it is often necessary to go to court and obtain some kind of assistance from the court in the form of an order that prevents the parent from doing that behavior in front of the children.
  • That’s hard to actually control because a lot of the times that parent comes home drunk or abuses drugs outside of the house and is then in the presence of the children that way, which can be very scary to them.
  • Sometimes an order of protection is necessary.
  • The first step is to contact the court through your attorney and see what kind of relief would be appropriate.
  • Depending on the individual case, this may have to be done through a motion, through family court with order of protection or by calling the police.
