Alcoholism can and does destroy marriages
Alcoholism, like any addiction, is a disease which will affect a person for the rest of their life. There is no one-step cure and it can be a long battle with the disease.

- They have given up other activities they used to enjoy, and instead are
- When they are not drinking they become irritable, anxious, have a loss of
- They have begun to lie about their drinking habits, lost their appetite, or look fatigued.
Often alcoholics can become both emotionally and physically abusive when they drink. In this type of situation, it is important for the spouse and the children to get out of the home. Often the Court will condition the visitation and custody time of the alcoholic parent by requiring them to be sober. The Courts do this to try to ensure that the child will be in a safe environment when with the parent. If the alcoholic parent is not able to remain sober the child will not be left alone with the parent. If your spouse is showing signs of being an alcoholic, talk to our lawyers at John T. Fields & Associates, to see what can be done about changing custody and visitation so your child is not put in harm’s way by being left alone with a parent battling alcoholism.
