Parental Rights & Obligations

questions & answers

Question: My parents are getting a divorce and my younger sibing resides with my mother. Myself and other siblings realize that our mother is addicted to prescribed medications. My father does not want to write anything in the papers about my mothers drug dependency, however, my siblings and I agree that my mom should have to attend rehab to keep our sibling in her home. Is there legally anything we can do to demand rehab?

Answer: If you do not want to address this in the court papers, you can have your father draft an agreement for your mother to sign stating that she will agree to attend rehab.  The agreement can state that should she fail to attend rehab, then he will address the issue with the court.
