DUI Divorce Issues
DUI Divorce Issues
DUI divorce issues are common. If you are involved in a custody dispute, or have a vindictive spouse who would like to start one, a DUI conviction can be used against you in domestic relations court. In addition, automatic license suspensions may make it difficult to exercise visitation with your children. You may also find a court who will refuse to let you transport the children due to a DUI conviction. This increases the cost or difficulty in seeing your kids. If you are seeking an adoption, a DUI conviction may be used against you by an investigating agency charged with deciding if you are approved.

MADD Is Busy Creating DUI Divorce Issues
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) has long advocated putting a provision in every divorce decree. They call for immediate suspension of parental rights if the parent if found to be driving while intoxicated. Make sure that you review your divorce decree to see if any such language is included and decide whether or not you will engage in negotiations to remove this language.
Given all the above, many times the most difficult aspect of a DUI is telling those people you love you have been charged. The National Highway Transportation Administration, MADD, The Century Council, schools and colleges all spend millions of dollars on educational programs and television commercials stigmatizing the act of drunk driving. DUI clients are perceived as guilty without a presumption of innocence afforded to most defendants. Furthermore, it causes stress and financial concerns in families that can cause minor fissures to become major cracks. If you find yourself charged with a DUI please contact a competent criminal defense attorney. They protect you from this many-tentacled beast.
