Daughter has mental health issues and made false allegations of sexual abuse propositions being made to her by my husband (step-father). She lies constantly about important and minute things. The night she alledges he propositioned her she was at a friend's overnight. We currently have her staying with friends for our safety and hers. CPS does not stay in contact with us and provides us with no answers. Heard today that CPS told my daughter that they were working on having her step-father removed from home so she can live with me.
I am not an expert but I seriously doubt if they can force you to live without your husband.. I would assume it is more likely that CPS would take your daughter into protective custody (e.g. place her in a foster home) instead of allowing her to live with someone that she alleges is abusing her.
That said, their is a way ... they could have your husband removed by bringing a criminal charge and locking him up .. but they need to go through a trial first. Your testimony that he was at a friends (and the friends testimony) the night she alleged he propositioned her might be enough to prevent that.. unless she gets wise and changes the date of the allegation.
I would idendity and even contact a criminal attorney for your husband in preparation..
