Alcohol Restrictions during a Divorce
04/14/2009 - Divorce - State: ALL #15988
My divorce was final in 01/03. My ex-husband agreed to 'alcohol restrictions' and this wording was included in the court's decision. My daughter has seen a psychologist through my work program. The psychologist is concerned with what my daughter told her and wants me to find out what these specific 'restrictions' are. I am the residential and custodial parent and our daughter will be 10 next month and no longer wants to go with her dad (especially not for overnight or weekend visitations).
I suggest reviewing the court order for a specific definition of this term. If it is not defined in the court order, it may be necessary to seek clarification from the court. The term "alcohol restriction" isn't defined in the Ohio statutes that relate to a divorce, nor in the published case law available.
Typically, the term is used to define age limits applicable to consumption or possession of alcohol, or is used in the context of licensing of certain professionals. Even when referred to in statutes relating to licensing of professionals, it is usually up the the governing board to determine what restrictions are placed on an individual.
