I am about to start the process of divorcing my
wife. We have a child together. Problem is I am

What you need is an attorney to help.  While I do not know what you mean by "starting the process", what generally happens is that a party files for divorce then makes an application for pendente lite relief - relief during the pendency of the action - for custody, support, etc.  In that motion you can ask for drug testing as well.  Good luck.
