If I’ve Been Sober For Years, Can My Spouse Still Bring Up Alcoholism To Keep Me From My Kids In A Brooklyn Divorce?

Yes, your spouse can certainly introduce that information as a ploy to attack your fitness, but for recovering alcoholics who’ve been sober for extended periods, a good attorney will most likely be able to turn the charge around.

Courts are hesitant to award custody to alcoholics, but much more open to the picture of a person who has taken responsibility for a disease and continues to take steps to protect their sobriety.

Custody matters are extremely difficult for many divorcing couples, and it’s unfortunately common that some spouses will take a “kitchen sink” approach to try to convince a judge that their soon-to-be-ex is unfit.

Work with experienced Brooklyn divorce and child custody attorneys who understand how to turn potential weaknesses into displays of strength.
