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

Yes. Remember the test for the child or custody of the child is what’s in the child’s best interest. So if the court has been presented with evidence that a parent has been involved in an excessive use of alcohol or illegal drugs, then the court may order alcohol or drug testing. It may be a one time test or it may be continued monitoring. Again, it’s what’s in the child’s best interest, bearing in mind that it is important to have a non-impaired parent to be able to parent the child. We don’t want to see harm to these children and therefore the courts take a very active role in monitoring the adults and their behavior where drugs and alcohol are concerned.
