My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: Wisconsin
My boyfriend is 19 and he remembers being physically abused by his stepdad when he was a child. He told a school counselor, he reported it, and my boyfriend then was sent to talk to a social worker. He explained his situation and told her what he told the counselor. He felt like she thought he was just trying to get attention or something and his mom must have told her nothing happened. So, the social worker must not have done anything because he requested to be removed from this abusive environment and to give full custody to his dad, who had half custody at the time, and nothing happened. He was forced to continue to live there every other week and to continue to be abused for 5 or more years. We want to know if there's anything we can do about this social worker. She should be fired at least. And is there anything that can be done at this point about this entire situation? There has definitely psychological damage to my boyfriend, at least in my opinion. Can we sue to pay for therapy or something?
