I would need a little more information to answer your question. Are there currently any Court orders in place? Are you in the process of a divorce, or simply living apart?
I would suggest that if there are no orders in place, you begin the process immediately. You can request that your husband be ordered to submit to random alcohol testing via TASC if you are able to present evidence of a drinking problem.
In any case, you should consult with an experienced family law attorney.
Arizona Revised Statutes 25-403.04 deals with family law matters and substance abuse. It says that if the court determines that a parent has abused drugs or alcohol [or has been convicted of any drug offense] within twelve months before the petition or the request for legal decision-making or parenting time is filed, there is a rebuttable presumption that sole or joint legal decision-making by that parent is not in the child's best interests.
