Addiction can affect child custody orders

It is an all-too-familiar occurrence these days when a Pennsylvania parent struggles with an addiction to drugs or alcohol. With powerful painkillers available through prescriptions, it does not take long for addiction to take hold, leaving some parents unable to fulfill their parental duties. However, if the parents are divorced and following a court-ordered child custody plan, one partner may have concerns about leaving the children with the addicted parent.

Figuring out child custody terms? Ask yourself these questions

When going through a divorce or separation, there are a lot of things that require consideration. Some couples are able to work a number of issues out on their own or with the assistance of legal counsel. Others, on the other hand, have to go to court to have a judge weigh in on the situation. Child custody, for example, is one of those things that numerous parents in Pennsylvania struggle to agree on.
