Hello. I am going to be assisting you with your question today.
Please note: This is general information and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.
At this point, the best course of action would be simply to speak to his father and try to calm him down. You should not call child services to explain what happened. Just be sure to document everything from this point forward (all conversations, text messages, emails, etc.). Try to have all conversations in writing. The only thing you can do at this point is wait. Your boyfriend could potentially call the police to report the threats. He may even be able to get a restraining order. However, this will only aggravate the situation in my opinion and should be avoided.
I hope I have answered your questions. If I have not, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions you may have. Also, please do not forget to rate my response at your earliest convenience.
If you feel that would benefit you. However, the social workers typically inspect the environment to see if there is any credibility to the complaints that were made. If there is nothing to worry about, then you can save the money. If you don't handle these types of situations well or if there may be some things that could catch the attention of child services, then I would consult an attorney.
