Is the parent of your child abusing drugs?  This is a very serious problem in today’s world and is much more common than you might think and affects people in all walks of life.  Many times, the problem starts off innocently enough, with prescription drugs being administered after an accident or surgery.  Unfortunately, continued use can lead to many problems that will greatly affect your relationship and the lives of your children.

The most important thing to do is to try to get the addict help.  If they are not interested in help, then you must remove yourself and, most importantly, your children from a potentially devastating situation.  The courts will help protect you and your children from some of these devastating situations, but you must make the first move which is, many times, a very difficult one.  An attorney can help guide you through the process.

An attorney can also help to guide you as to protecting finances and assets, as well as on how to avoid the pitfalls of falling into substantial debt.

Of course, hiring an attorney costs money, however, not protecting yourself from the consequences of continuing your life and your children’s lives, with an addicted loved one can cost more than the cost of the attorney in the long run.
