So, backstory: some friends and my family moved in together about 4 months ago. Together, there are 4 adults, her previous marriage 8 yr old son, previous marriage 4 year old daughter, my 3 yr old son and their 7 mo old son. The ex husband, who I also know well (went to school with him) has been a royal turd since she remarried. He has said several times in email and in texts that he doesn't care about the kids, he just wants to make her life miserable, and frankly, he's doing a great job of it.
Ok, the situation: the ex got angry bc the 8yr old said he didn't want to go to his dads for the summer. The father has been blatantly lying to the 8 yr and he see's it, doesn't want to go and told his dad as much. Well, now the ex is apparently going to call CPS, using pictures of the house that this family moved out of last year and saying that it was disgusting and a wreck. My friend is crying and telling me that if CPS does come out, that I'LL be investigated as well. Is this true? And what can I do? Will there be any way to sue this man for defamation of character or something? I've got childhood issues with CPS and really don't want to go through this and sincerely don't want my child or their children or even them to go through it either. They are amazing parents, and I've been a witness to all of their residences, I know they aren't what he's claiming that they are. I'm having some serious anxiety right now and would really appreciate any advice.
