I am in Northern California. I have been divorced twice. The first time was 1993 and I have one daughter from that marriage. It was a very litgious case and I constantly had to seek the courts assistance to enforce visitation. One time I filed a contempt charge in 1995 because my ex failed to meet me at the court ordered location. The day she received notice from the court that she needed to bring my daughter and appear before the court on the contempt charge, she filed a report that I had sexuallly abused my daughter. Investigation determined that mom had done this to stop visitation...my ex never filed any motions about this accusation. She had been reprimanded in earlier hearings for false accusations and was warned that she would lose custody if she ever did it again. This was in South Dakota. I moved all over the country across the state to be close to Minnesota where she moved, to Utah where I was planning to move and now California where I have been since 1999. My second ex denied ever making an accusation against me when I brought it to the attention of the court. She has made a mockery of my joint custody in California for the past five years.
I remarried in 2003 have a daughter from that marriage. Separated 2004 and divorced finalized July 2007. My 2nd ex was very mean to my daughter who was now 12. She threw our things out twice into piles in the driveway and that was enough and I filed the next day. I mistakenly reconciled for a few months without knowing that my 2nd was corresponding with my 1st. During the separation, my 1st ex filed a report with CPS and accused me of being inappropriate with my 12yr old daughter. During the investigation, CPS and the sheriff's department cleared me of any wrongdoing after speaking to my 12 yr old. However they voiced their concern about both of my daughter's safety around my
2nd ex and 6 yr old stepson. Both my 12 yr old and myself told the investigators that we witnessed the boy touch my 8 month old inappropriately. My 2nd went to a counselor prior to our marriage to discuss her concerns about her sons inappropriate and sexually aggressive behavior when he was 4 and 5.
My now 4 yr old daughter has been making statements for the past two years that the boy has been touching her and sexually abusing her. I report it but CPS's response is that they think I am only doing this because my ex has filed so many reports against me. My 2nd ex successfully had custody taken away from me for 44 days in August 2006 based upon a false allegation of abuse. It was reintstated when it was found that mom coached my youngest daughter to say that I hurt her. Since August 2006 my youngest daughter has been put through at least five sexual abuse exams.
Today I had a trial based upon my motion for change of custody for my 4 yr old based upon mother doing this to my youngest, not following any court orders and creating constant turmoil in my youngest daughters life. As I was waiting for my hearing (the attorney's were in judges chambers for two hours) I noticed my teenage daughter was in the hallway around the corner. My attorney didn't tell me they were going to be subpoened. My now 15 yr old daughter has now stated that she thinks she remembers that I had molested her when she was 4 yrs old. My attorney, my ex's attorney and my 4 yr old daughter's GAL interviewed my 15 yr old. The GAL and my attorney both have concerns that she has been coerced to say this by my first ex.
Does anyone have any suggestions for an expert witness of false allegations of child sexual abuse?
