My husbands ex wife reported me to CPS for "emotional abuse"

Customer Question
My husbands ex wife...

My husbands ex wife reported me to CPS for "emotional abuse" of her daughter. We went through an investigation and were found not guilty. Now I have found electronic evidence that the ex wife and daughter had a plan to do this, among other things. Is there anything that I can do so she can be held accountable for her actions?

You can report her back to CPS for filing false report and CPS put a note on the record in case she files another false report.

You need to hold on to your evidence because that may come in handy in any custody/visitation modification she files with the Court because of the alleged "emotional abuse."

Best wishes,

A 5-star positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating. However, that is how I get paid for answering questions on this site.

Thank you for your cooperation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
