Alcohol Monitoring for Child Custody Cases

Concerns about a parent’s alcohol abuse, whether admitted or denied, can bog down a child custody case. Our alcohol monitoring program can help break that logjam, providing an alternative to supervised access and/or a way of proving that alcohol abuse is not a concern.

With Continuous Alcohol Monitoring, the parent whose alcohol consumption is at issue wears a secure anklet that tests their perspiration vapour for alcohol every 30 minutes, 24/7.

With Remote Breath testing, the parent provides breath tests on a set schedule, either multiple times every day or before, during, and after parenting time. Facial recognition confirms it is the parent providing the breath sample.

With both technologies, a reporting protocol is established so that the other parent will know if scheduled tests are missed or if alcohol consumption is detected.

Both technologies also enable a parent who wishes to show that they don’t abuse alcohol to create an objectively documented record of sobriety or responsible drinking patterns.
