Checklist of questions whose answers can derail a custody or visitation case

I tried a custody case last month in which I learned a few weeks prior to trial that my client was using marijuana approximately once a month. What had previously seemed a strong case for custody no longer was. While many of the issues that can derail a South Carolina custody case seem pretty obvious, there are a few things that can derail these cases that aren’t so obvious to folks–especially younger folks–who don’t work within the court system: marijuana use and live-in boyfriends/girlfriends being excellent examples.

Thus, I decided it would be useful to develop a “checklist” of questions to provide custody and visitation clients at the beginning of their case to determine whether there are potentially fatal issues before one commences litigation. This checklist is a work in progress and I expect to update it periodically. I am grateful to anyone who offers suggestions.
