DCFS drug testing

San Fernando, CA |

My husband was court ordered to drug test and although DCFS requested that I be as well, the court did not order it. DCFS now keeps asking me to do on demand tests almost weekly. Can I refuse based off there not being a court order?

You may refuse to drug testing, however you may loose custody of your children if you do not submit to the drug testing. If the children are removed from the home based on your refusal to test, a court will want to know why you are not testing. Generally, the court's view is that there is nothing to hide, the parent will be willing to test when it is requested.

The response above does not form an attorney-client relationship. This answer may or may not apply to you and should not be relied upon as legal advice.
