Smoking affects outcome of child custody cases

Child custody cases across the country are beginning to rely more heavily on tobacco use when dealing with custody arrangements.

An anti-tobacco advocacy group compiled statistics related to this topic from courts all over the country. Their findings indicated that more and more states are factoring in cigarette smoking when making final decisions regarding the custody of minor children. Parents who are considered to be smokers are less likely to be granted full custody of a child due to their addictive habit.

The data also shows that judges are administering orders that prohibit cigarette smoking around children, in cars when children are present, and inside of residential homes. The smoking habits of family members that will be near the children are also considered before a custody arrangement is determined.

If you need help regarding a child custody case, please contact the San Diego child custody lawyers of Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP by calling 858-935-6211 today.
