DUI charges and child custody

Many people recognize that drunk driving charges can create a variety of problems in a person’s life, from being sentenced to prison to losing their driving privileges and paying steep fines. However, people may not be aware of some of the other reasons why drunk driving charges are so serious. For example, they may interfere with a parent’s ability to spend time with their child. Whether a parent wishes to dispute a child custody issue or they are thinking about separating from their partner and are worried about who will have custody of the child, these charges can have a major impact on the outcome of such a case.

If you were accused of drunk driving and are preparing for a custody dispute, you should have a clear understanding of all of your legal options. You should make sure that you defend yourself properly with respect to the DUI charges you are facing. Or, if you have already moved on from the case, it is important to understand how the outcome of your DUI case could affect your attempt to secure the custody of your child.

There are many different factors that can have a huge impact on how drunk driving cases play out, some may even seem relatively insignificant at first. As a result, you should take an individualized approach to your DUI case and handle the charges carefully, especially if the custody of your child is at stake. Our page on drunk driving offers more information relevant to some concerns people charged with DUI may have.
