Soberlink is a comprehensive monitoring system that supports accountability to drive sober, especially when children are involved. The system combines a breathalyzer and a portable design for recognition of the parties involved. Soberlink is a trailblazer for trust between clients and attorneys in family cases. Soberlink’s devices detect the presence of alcohol through a sleek and portable device. What makes Soberlink significant is the results will be sent through cellular or Bluetooth connection and create an advanced report of a client’s testing data.
Soberlink is practical in family law because it provides a secure co-parenting environment by addressing alcohol abuse through daily or weekly basis. Soberlink is the #1 remote alcohol monitoring system used in child custody cases. Their website lists various sample agreements to ease clients or attorneys in finding a plan that works for them. The “Level One” sample agreement focuses on cases where parents are offered a specified time with their child by the court’s rule and the parent must comply to testing during parenting time only. The second sample agreement, “Level Two” is daily testing based on a set schedule for the monitored client, typically two or three times a day. Testing time is managed by Soberlink, text message reminders would be sent and missed tests would be documented.
In various cases where the safety of the children is involved with a parent who has a history of drug or alcohol use or abuse, soberlink is used to ensure that the children have a safe mode of transportation with that parent, and it provides an avenue for the parent to have parenting time with the children without outright denying parenting time should they not be under the influence.
