In their Divorce Law column, Alton L. Abramowitz, a partner at Mayerson Abramowitz & Kahn, and Tiffany Evans, an associate with the firm, explore several cases in which substance or alcohol abusing parents were denied custody, how we identify substance abuse versus substance dependency, the "gray area" that judges face when deciding these cases, and what lawyers can do when confronted with the dynamic of addiction and alcohol/substance abuse in their cases.
