Family Court Case Coordinator
A Judicial officer may enter an order requiring a person to get services, and require the Family Court Case Coordinator to make sure the person is complying with the court order(s). These court-ordered services may be for:
- Chemical Dependency Evaluation
- Chemical Dependency Treatment
- Domestic Violence Evaluation
- Domestic Violence Treatment
- Mental Health Evaluation
- Mental Health Treatment
- Parenting Classes
- Supervised Visitation
- Attendance at Counseling
- Random Urinalysis testing
The Family Court Case Coordinator monitors the services, collects evaluations and treatment reports, tracks updates to services, and analyzes urinalysis test results. The goal is for the participant to successfully comply with the court’s order(s).
If the participant does not comply with the court’s order, the Case Coordinator must follow up. A judicial officer will enter an Order to Show Cause Re Non-Compliance to require the participant to go to a court hearing. The judicial officer will talk about the issue in court and will decide whether to order consequences for failing to follow the court’s order(s).
Urinalysis (UA) Information
UAs are done at the Thurston County DUI/Drug Court Building located at:
2400 Bristol Ct SW, Suite B
Olympia WA 98502
- UA PIN: You will be assigned a pin number from Court Administration. Go to Court Administration today to receive that pin. If you were not present in court please call the Case Coordinator at 360-709-3214. To obtain your pin you will likely have to provide some form of ID, if calling in, it may need to be through email or fax.
- CALL EVERY DAY: You are required to call in MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, including holidays, by 6:00 a.m. to determine if you must provide a UA that day. When you call the UA number you must listen to the entire message and hang up ONLY when the message indicates to do so.
- UA HOURS: Monday through Friday the UA hours are 6:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. for all men, and 7:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. for all women. You must provide your UA during the designated UA hours which are stated everyday during the UA message. You will NOT be allowed to provide a UA outside of the stated UA hours.
- UA RESPONSIBILITY: You must be able to provide the urine sample prior to the end of the UA hours. Each person is taken in the order they arrive at the building. Failure to provide your UA during the required UA hours will be reported to the court as a “No Show” for the UA. If you failed to appear for UA testing, the court may consider it positive. PLEASE BRING PICTURE ID.
- INVALID & DILUTE UAS: You are responsible to provide valid UA samples. A specimen with creatinine falling below 20mg/dL is considered invalid. Creatinine is a metabolic product of muscle contraction that is excreted in urine at a relatively constant rate. A sample is considered diluted if the creatinine level is 20 ng or below and the specific gravity is below 1.003. Specific gravity reflects the amount of solid substances that are dissolved in urine. To prevent an invalid or dilute sample, don’t drink excessive amounts of fluid prior to providing your urine sample (i.e. do not drink more than 8 oz of fluids within an hour of providing your UA).
- YOU AND ONLY YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE UA RESULTS: It is your responsibility to read the ingredients listed on the labels of everything you eat or drink. You must avoid all foods, beverages, and medications that contain any alcohol and/or poppy seeds. Provide the Case Coordinator with any prescriptions and changes to prescriptions right away. Some prescribed and over-the-counter medications can affect your UA so you should check with a pharmacist or the court prior to taking anything new. Claiming that you did not know what was contained in an item will not be an acceptable excuse.
- DRESS CODE: You may not be allowed in the building to provide a UA if you are not dressed appropriately. Please remember you are entering a professional building. When coming to provide your UA ensure you are wearing appropriate length shorts, skirts and dresses. Additionally, you should NOT wear a tank top, halter top, midriff-baring shirt, hat, or clothing with alcohol/drug logo, gang logo, or obscenity on them.
- CHILDREN: If you need to bring your children with you while you provide your UA, it is your responsibility to monitor them and ensure that they behave appropriately. If your children are disruptive, you will be asked to NO longer bring them with you.
- CELL PHONES: All cell phones are to be turned off while in the building. If you need to make a call you will need to step outside.
- OFFICE CONTACT: If you need to speak with someone at the Drug Court Office you may reach us at 360-357-2482.
- PAYMENT: PRIOR to arriving at the Drug Court Office, you must pay for your UA at the Thurston County Clerk’s Office. Fee for a regular UA is $10.00. If you are required to submit to ETG UA’s the fee is $25.00. The Drug Court Office WILL NOT accept your payment. You must take your receipt to the Drug Court Office as proof of payment. If you do not have a receipt, you will not be allowed to submit a sample. If you do not submit a sample, you will be considered noncompliant and you may be ordered to come to Court to discuss further consequences.
