My question involves restraining orders in the State of: TX
I have a 5 yr old daughter with an ex who is controlling and has harassed me with false CPS reports. What can I do?
The CPS reports started in 07 when my daughter was 2. She had a few little scratches on her back and butt from playing in a card board box. Her father called me up to complain that she had an accident in the car, I told him where the blame should be at since she told him she had to go. He then mentioned the scratches she recieved earlier that day. I explained to him how she got them and that I had put medicine on them. HE was mad because "she should be properly clothed at all times". The scratches were gone when she came home at the end of the weekend. Early the following week we received a visit from a CPS worker about abuse. She took pictures and we talked. The case was closed.
The second time was in 08. This time he claimed there was sexual abuse. I got a call from CPS and we scheduled a meeting/interview. There was a Police Detective there. Im not exactly sure what they did to my daughter but after they talked with her the CPS worker took me back and spoke with me. She wasn't able to tell me who filed the report, but after telling me what I was accussed of I put 2 and 2 together and figured out it was my ex. It helped that my daughter told me a month prior that "daddy said you took me to a dirty movie in the theater". I am very careful of what my daughter watches and new this wasn't true. He later accused me of allowing my friend to sexually abuse her. This case was also closed.
I went ahead and requested the reports from CPS and just got them in the mail. I read them over and the information in it is wrong. They keep mentioning how she was in the hospital numorous times because her arm was "yanked out of socket". She had nurse maids elbow as a baby/toddler. Her father even admitted to me after we found out she was suseptable to nurse maids elbow that he picked her up by her arms because she had a fit at the mall. She started screaming her arm hurt (was 2-3 at the time) and instead of getting her medical attention he made her take a nap.
The allegations are totally false, with twisted truths and added lies. He gave false information to CPS- a false phone number for me, as well as telling them I dont have a vehicle and was there when they came but refused to answer the door. This was in the report.
I haven't heard of any other reports against me by him. But was told by CPS that because he has made these false ones they will most likely ignore his accusations.
Is there anything I can do about these false reports? I feel its unfair to have these horrible false reports against me. He shouldn't be able to make things up to make me look like a bad person. Is there any point in pursuing a case against him for harassment? He still treats me horrible. I'd ignore it, but he includes our daughter in things. Using her as a messenger, telling her lies about me.
