There are many situations in which someone may be legally required to undergo alcohol and drug testing, such as:
Child custody cases - legal battles involving child custody may include issues of drug or alcohol use or abuse among one or both, former spouses - to then be considered in decisions for the best interest of the child.
DUI or DWI arrests - arrests or convictions for DUI or DWI often require court-ordered drug and alcohol testing.

Court ordered drug tests will contain detailed instructions specifying the type of test to be administered and the drugs that should be screened for. If sample collection needs to be witnessed in order to prevent potential tampering or substitution, those specifications will be stated in the court order.

Alcohol testing includes urine alcohol testing (ETG), preliminary breath test (PBT) and the breath alcohol test (EBT). Urine alcohol tests and PBT tests are inexpensive, easy to conduct, making them a great option for personal uses, like parents wanting to determine if their child consumed alcohol, as well as legal such as probation alcohol testing.
However, standard alcohol testing may not be best suited for workplace testing. It’s difficult to relate the urine concentration of alcohol to the legal benchmark, which is blood alcohol. For workplace clients who wish to determine impairment or the prohibited use of alcohol Michigan Court Services recommends breath alcohol testing.
Michigan Court Services uses different types of testing including multi drug screening tests for detection of Marijuana (THC), Cocaine (COC), Oxycodone (OXY), Ecstasy (MDMA), Buprenorphine (BUP), Morphine / Opiates (MOP), Amphetamines (AMP), Barbiturates (BAR), Benzodiazepines (BZO), Methamphetamines (MET), Methadone (MTD), Phencyclidine (PCP) as well other abused illicit and prescription drugs.
Employers and individuals seeking a cost-effective and time-tested method for detecting virtually any drug choose urine screenings. There are many advantages of urine testing. Drugs rapidly make their way into a person’s urine, and thus can be detected almost immediately after consumption.

Many companies perform drug testing to take advantage of the incentives like reductions in worker’s comp insurance rates. In reality, any employer that wants to ensure a safe, productive work environment and lowers risk of the negatives brought on by employee drug use, should conduct employment drug testing.
When Employment Drug Testing Usually Occurs
An employee drug testing program will include screening both pre-employment and post-hire. Employers should consider when testing will take place and make sure the requirements are consistent throughout the company.
Pre-Employment – The most common type of drug test is pre-employment drug testing, conducted as a condition of future employment.
Post-Accident – Employers should conduct employee drug testing after an accident/incident to determine if drug use may have played a role.
Random – Most employers wants to establish a random employee alcohol and drug testing program where a percentage of all employees are randomly screened throughout the year. This is an excellent way to ensure employees remain drug-free beyond the standard pre-employment drug testing.
Reasonable Suspicion – It is even more vital with the rise in marijuana use, employers can require employee drug testing when illegal drug use is suspected. Employers are strongly encouraged to train their managers on how to accurately detect and handle reasonable suspicion situations.
Pre-Placement - For employees who are returning to work after an injury or absence
Return to Duty – For those employees that fail an employee drug test and are ready to return to the workplace may be required to submit a return-to-duty employee drug test.

The most commonly ordered DNA test is a Paternity Test to conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child. DNA Paternity Testing is the most advanced and accurate method available for resolving parentage for medical, legal, or personal reasons.
With advanced DNA technology, paternity testing is accurate, rapid and affordable. Paternity can now be determined within 1 to 3 business days after the samples arrive at the laboratory. Results are released immediately once the testing is completed.
We offer two types of DNA Paternity Testing which are - Legal Paternity Testing and Private Paternity Testing.
Private Paternity Testing
A private paternity DNA test is an excellent choice if you want an answer for personal knowledge or peace of mind only. Michigan Court Services will provide the kit for specimen collection and will send samples to the lab. The results of the private paternity testing are not court-admissible.
Legal Paternity Test
Legal Paternity Testing (also known as chain-of-custody testing) is intended for court use and is accepted as definitive legal proof of paternity or non-paternity in courts. It can also provide results as proof for child support, custody, immigration, birth certificate, social security, or other legal reasons.
If the legal testing option is chosen, an appointment will be scheduled for the parties involved for sample collection at a designated Michigan Court Services, Inc chain-of-custody sample collection facility.
