I just a dui my first, 3 months ago I lost custody of my two kids because of a domestic violence charge it was dropped, I was told to attend alcohol and dv classes which I'm currently in. Will this affect getting back full custody??

Given you have already lost custody of your children, it could affect your chances of getting them back. You didn't just lose them because of a domestic violence charge, you lost them because you have a problem with alcohol.....and you just proved you still DO have a problem with alcohol. I would suggest you not only attend an alcohol class, but consider giving it up altogether because you clearly can't control it. Find a local AA. And see a counsellor. Both of those things will be a step in the right direction.
