Antidepressant medication and custody disputes

A wide range of factors are taken into consideration when it comes to child custody, from financial issues to abuse and each parent’s ability to provide their child with care. Some people find themselves in unique situations, and there are many other issues which can influence a custody outcome. For example, someone who is taking antidepressant medication may be worried about whether this could affect their ability to secure custody. They may be afraid that a former partner will accuse them of being unfit to raise a child due to depression or claim that they are a drug addict.

Unfortunately, some people take antidepressant medication as a direct result of abuse at the hands of their former partner, or hardships that they have had to endure due to their child’s other parent (such as an affair, mistreatment, etc.). If you are taking antidepressants, there are a number of steps that you may need to take to prevent these hurdles from adversely impacting your custody case. For example, you may need to prove to the court that your antidepressant use is in line with your doctor’s instructions and that this will not negatively affect your behavior or your ability to raise your child.

Sadly, some parents who have already had to deal with abuse and threats may be afraid that their former partner will use this against them during a custody dispute. As a result, it is pivotal to be prepared for your custody case and any issues that may arise in the courtroom.
