Hi any advice?

Stbx has tested positive for cocaine but last two tests have come back negative and we are up for review on the 3rd July.

I would like to see tests for the next year to ensure that he just doesn't go back to using it again... just want to protect our two year old daughter...

He has lied in court both verbally and in his statement about his usage... has had his hair cut twice despite court orders... will that help me in convincing a magistrates panel that tests need to be continued.

Any advice would be appreciated...

Thanks in advance:(

I assume cafcass are involved, if he has a drug problem and has tested posative ongoing testing is not unusual, and erm he is not the first to shave his head ;)hair strand testing gives definitive results and cant be cheated so if court say he needs to be tested again they will find hair.

Thanks Dukey.. Cafcass was involved at the start and as the courts deemed his use to be recreational they are now in the background....

Hair from other parts is possible but the head is the best for monthly accurate analysis...

Thanks for taking the time to respond and I hope that the courts do insist on further testing to ensure our 2 year old is safe and secure.. she also deserves a drug free Dad
