False positive on drug test

Asked May 24, 2016, 2:56 PM EDT

My girlfriend recently was trying to adopt her grandchildren. Part of the process was drug testing.Her urinalysis showed positive for methamphetamine. She does not use meth and to her knowledge she hasn't been anywhere that she could have been exposed.She asked for a gc/ms validation test but family services refused. Her own lawyer would not mention false positives in court . He told her there is absolutely nothing that will cause a false positive for meth. Everything I have read says different.I hope you can answer this question about false positives. Thank you
