The impact of drunk driving on child custody

We have explored many of the different ways in which those charged with driving under the influence are affected. From the loss of their driving privileges to prison time and costly fines, these charges can certainly make life challenging in different ways. However, drunk driving charges can create additional hardships for people in ways that are often overlooked. For example, drunk driving can spell trouble for those who are in the middle of a custody dispute, or anticipate that they will be going through a dispute over child custody in the near future. In Boston, and other Massachusetts cities, parents in this position need to be prepared.

Reasonable doubt and Massachusetts blood alcohol tests

Although taking a chemical test to determine blood alcohol content may seem like a bad idea for someone in Massachusetts who has had a few drinks, refusing could lead to more trouble. Regardless of BAC levels, though, drivers have rights. According to the instructions the Commonwealth of Massachusetts provides to jurors, one of those is the need for proof beyond a reasonable doubt that a person was operating the vehicle with a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher.

There is no time to waste. Let us begin building a strong defense for you now.
