My soon to be Ex husband has sexually abused 3 of my little sisters (all of them underage), his baby niece, and possibly my daughter. We are going through the divorce and he is trying to get full custody saying I'm an unfit parent. The sexual abuse has been reported to CPS and they are investigating it but still have not gotten him to confess or convicted. I am completely terrified of him having my daughter anywhere around him. I'm so afraid of loosing her to someone I know has done these things (and probably won't stop) all because he lies, denying the accusations and then my daughter is put right in harms reach. He has always been a compulsive liar and, until the victims spoke out, has done a great job at hiding what he really is from everyone. ...can he really get away with this just by lying about it to the detective??? If he gets custody of my daughter, the same people who should be there to protect my daughter (the judge, cps) will have put her in the direct opposite of protection, right into the hands of evil for her to get hurt as much as he wants to hurt her.Answer Question

How would he be able to prove that you are unfit? It is highly unlikely that the courts would take a child away from his / her mother unless they thought there was reason the child needed to be protected from the mother. However, he will likely still get visitation. In some cases, even if you can establish that he has abused other kids, the courts may choose to not stop visitations unless he actually abuses your daughter and you can prove it. Stop talking to him, get an attorney, tell them everything and ask others to testify if needed. Tell him all correspondence needs to be in writing.
