Can a Georgia court order drug testing of the parents when determining custody?

Return to FAQ Videos


Yes. In Georgia, the courts can order drug testing of either or both parents in determining custody. Because custody is determined by the best interest of the children, when faced with allegations of past or current drug use, the court can order the drug testing to alleviate this concern or to address what needs to be done in order to make sure the children are safe during either party’s parenting time.
