  • if she files a false accusation it will just look bad on her part. so if she repeatedly does this you can take action against her for harrassment. thats just ridiculous.

  • Why would she want to do that is the question ..and only you have the answers? Is your daughter's Father doing something that would cause her to want to take your baby from your if you guys got back together? Makes no sense. So I say there is more to the story here. If she is just being a controlling freak then you really don't have anything to worry about. People can't just take kids because they want them. Plus, they have to prove what ever bad things you are supposedly doing.

  • Even if she does try. I probably will not work. She is just trying to scare you. Just stay away form her. And her son.

  • If you already know getting along in not an option, stay away from her son unless it's to drop off your daughter. I doubt she can get custody but she can make your life hell. Not worth it.

  • It is very hard to take a child away from their parents, they have to be extemely bad parents. I would just blow her off, ignore her threats. If you know you are being good parents, and there is nothing for you to hide, let her do whatever she feels she needs to. I'd take it as empty threats.
