Q: After a temporary order , and finishing the order. Can the other party have a right to order a test without reasoning ?

I finished my life time recovery program on June 9th,2022. I was served a random court date for a hair and nail test. This started when I admitted to my husband I used when my son wasn't around. Due to the mental health and illness I was going through , I never had a criminal or drug history . Through the program I tested negative. I been having to pay to see my son through kid share. He has called me an addict.Told me he would do whatever it takes to take my son.He is 4 years old. His whole life. I made the appointments. I'm the reason why we got our first place. Just everything. I never used. And I admitted I did. Cos came at feb 8th out of no where. I complied. With me not being a constant user. I tested negative. On court day Andrew lawyer told me he had communication with cps. And they told him I tested positive. I almost gave up all my rights. And noone cared. I felt like a terrible person.
