I have a family member that wants me to support her in court. She has also asked me to write letters of recommendation for her husband's immigration interview (he is from New Zealand). She is fighting for custody of her 2 oldest children. She wants full legal custody and only wants their father to have them every other weekend. She wants child support too.
Here is the thing....she has and does drive "buzzed" with her kids. I consider it drunk but she says she is buzzed. Her new husband also drives drunk. The excuse is that it's only 2 miles but I still think it's wrong. My mom was killed a few miles from home by a drunk driver. I was only 11 yrs old at the time.
I don't know the father very well...but I think he deserves to get his kids 50% of the time.
Either way, I don't want to be involved in their drama. I don't want to write letters and I don't want to be a character witness.
Am I being a disloyal family member?

Don't testify to something that isn't true and if you know that she's driving around drunk YOU hold the responsibility of reporting that both to CPS and the police.
