The Lingering Effects of Substance Abuse on Children of Divorce

Where New Jersey divorce law is concerned, even a "recovered alcoholic" mother can have a tough time trying to see her children.

The New Jersey Appellate Division just upheld a lower trial court's hesitancy to allow a mother to commence reunification therapy with her 12-year old son where the mother had been sober for three years after having had a long history of alcoholism, and the father had been the primary parent for the child due to the prior alcoholism.
