Soberlink does alcohol monitoring in child custody cases, in which one or both parents are accused of abusing alcohol while on their parenting time. If using alcohol monitoring shows a parent is not abusing alcohol, it is good, and Soberlink does not interfere with the parent having meaningful parenting time with the children.
In many cases, the one parent who is abusing alcohol might not get as much parenting time because of his or her ongoing alcohol abuse. When one parent is under the influence of a substance or alcohol addiction, the parent can be denied child custody or visitation privileges. When a parent requests custody or visitation privileges, the court can require that parent to submit (and pay for) alcohol testing and/or monitoring.
The court may order, or both parties may consent to, Soberlink Alcohol Monitoring System testing, in order to assure the parent is sober prior, during, or after parenting time. Rather than penalizing parents alleged alcohol misuse, the Soberlink alcohol monitoring devices enable parents to demonstrate sobriety seven days a week, or just at parenting time. With Soberlink, parents who have alcohol abuse histories are in control of their sobriety, as Soberlink helps them stay on track through periodic tests.
Soberlink is an all-in-one alcohol tracking remote system, which integrates an FDA-approved alcohol-testing device with automated alerts and reports that document evidence of sobriety in real-time. Based out of Huntington Beach, the Soberlink System is a health tech company producing a drinking tracking system that can verify an individual’s status and sobriety in real-time — like, say, the parents. The Soberlink Monitoring System is a handheld, real-time, and wireless breathalyzer tracking device that measures the parent’s blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, and allows for a party to get that information in real-time through text message and/or email. By helping a parent to record his/her own alcohol consumption, Soberlink helps to close the gap between a child’s best interests and the interests of each parent.
Soberlink offers a unique, concrete way for parents to demonstrate an intense level of commitment to their sobriety and to their children. Soberlink fosters accountability, which can provide the basis on which parents can demonstrate to the courts that they are taking their drinking seriously. Soberlink is used more often in family courts, where it is used to support the best interests of children in cases that include alcohol abuse. When sobriety is a concern in a divorce or child custody case in Texas, Southlake family law attorney Leslie Barrows frequently requests that the court order another parent to have their soberness monitored by Soberlink.
Soberlink monitoring device reviews can help the Court to find out exactly what is going on in the home and at visitation. The ability to test remotely on Soberlink’s devices could help parents enforce their child custody agreements, maybe more now than ever. Having a monitoring alcohol system increases a parent’s chances of maintaining a close relationship with and a strong emotional connection to their children, which courts have consistently found to be in the best interests of children.
