trinton has a little shameless behaviour in the past

During the same time he's also had two extended hospitalizations for psychiatric problems, failed rehab three times, gone on long-term disability because of health problems associated with advanced alcoholism, has an open child protection investigation, and repeatedly harassed me and his other ex-wife verbally and in written form. There is every possible material change in circumstance. He is a classic alcoholic-in-a-downward-spiral.

Kid still does want to see him and I am facilitating that, otherwise I would have nothing to do with him at all. The drunk-at-school incident was the straw that finally pushed me over the edge to seek a legal remedy rather than keep hoping he would stop drinking.
Was it known that he drank alcohol at the time the order made? How the drinking at the school incident get's perceived by the courts is ultimately how the CAS (the people who are trained to protect children) conclude it as. If CAS has no concerns, then you can't have any concerns. If you disagree with them then I think you must get the OCL to investigate and overturn their conclusions - good luck.

Has there been any incidents of him drinking and driving with child at other times? Does he drink at home around the child? Or does he just randomly _only_ show up at the school drunk ?
