Under what circumstances can the court require a noncustodial parent to take a drug test? My exhusband has a history but I can't prove it, I recently found out his house looks like an episode of Hoarders and there is a DFS case open. I suspect that he is into some hard drugs and/or his mental state has declined immensely. Is having a uninhabitable home grounds for a drug test?

In my experience, Judges will Order a Drug Test in any case where it is requested. You may have to pay for it, and you may be Ordered to take one yourself. But first, you need to have a case pending, such as a Motion to Modify perhaps. I handle these cases all the time. You may contact me for a free telephone consultation.
Not unless you can prove that there is a reasonable basis for having it done.
