Serious Counsel For Legal Issues That Involve Substance Abuse

At the Law Office of Cheryl Bucker, P.A., our family law attorneys are experienced in handling substance abuse and mental health issues for our clients and their loved ones. Based in Pompano Beach, we have addressed sensitive family situations with careful, strategic counsel.

Substance Abuse And Psychological Testing

In family law cases, such as divorce or child custody, one parent may feel that substance use or abuse or psychological issues are negatively affecting the child’s safety. In this event, the concerned parent can petition the court to conduct random drug and psychological testing. These tests will ensure that the parent is sober and of sound mind, so that he or she can adequately and safely care for the child.

If you or a loved one is struggling with substance abuse, we can help you pursue a healthier lifestyle so that you can have more meaningful time with your child. Generally speaking, a judge will look favorably upon a parent who admits his or her imperfections while pursuing the appropriate type of treatment.

In Guardian Ad Litem Cases, We Can Advocate For Your Child

Your children see more than you think. Children are often the biggest victims in any family law case, and they witness the conflict firsthand.

Our attorneys are also available to serve as your child’s guardian ad litem in child custody disputes or other family law cases. By acting as guardian ad litem, we take a very close look into your child’s life at school and at home as well as his or her relationships with each parent and other family and community members. After carefully reviewing your family’s situation, we will file a report and make recommendations that are in the best interests of your child.
