Divorcing an alcoholic in Arizona presents its own unique issues, particularly if children are involved in the divorce. The most significant issue pertains to the safety and well being of your children and can affect child custody in Arizona. A person who consumes alcohol to the point they are drunk is unable to care for or protect his or her children.

Concerns exist not only in that parent’s home but the risk of that person driving while intoxicated with the children in the car. People suffering from addiction oftentimes exercise very poor judgment while they are under the influence of alcohol.

Some, but not all, alcoholics become angry and combative when they are intoxicated. This can have a direct effect on the children. Simply having a child see an intoxicated parent can have a very damaging effect on the children. If an alcoholic is prone to anger when intoxicated, you may experience caustic emails, text messages, and telephone calls from your soon to be former spouse.
