My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: Arizona
Started about 7 months ago, 2 step children went to their dads house for weekend. When they came on, they'd bed bug bites all over them. Then started finding bed bugs in their room. We heated the room above 180 degrees, cleaned and washed everything, put denatured earth down. Seemed to have gotten rid of them. Let their father know what happened and he said that he would address the issue.
Next time boys went to their fathers house, same thing happened again. We had two treat the room again. And their father wasn't doing anything about pest problem at his place.
Kids were scared of going over to their fathers house in fear of getting bit again. So mother told father that kids weren't going over until he resolved the issue. 2 -3 weeks went by. Father called and said bed bug issue resolved.
This evening my step children just returned from staying at their fathers house all weekend. (We've been having them come through the garage and leave everything they brought from their fathers house outside until it's washed and cleaned, including their clothes they're wearing, and immediate showers following as precautionary measures).
And my oldest step son informed he'd gotten bit by bed bugs again at his father's house.
My question is, can I file a report with CPS to help make the father, make a safe environment for the children at his house? Since all our attempts to get the father to resolve the bed bug issue at his house has failed.
