My dh has custody, cuz one day when she was 13, her mom literally dropped her off on our doorstep, and moved out of state, never giving a reason, or a way to get ahold of her. When she got back in contact w/sd, sd was miserable at our house b/c she was rebelling, and trying to find out what she could get away with here, which is nothing. She has a lot of issues, just like her mother. Always wanting to run from problems, and never taking accountability. Long story short, love her, but she is making my life hell. She was keeping a journal full of lies to give to CPS, her moms idea to get custody back, but she is 16 and knows that it couldn've made us lose our other children(4). We have done everything we could, counseling galore, etc.
Prob is, I cannot stand being around her anymore. She will be 17 soon, and is moving out as soon as she turns 18, back to mommy. I want her to go back now just as much as she does, (CONT)

I really don't know what to tell you. From what her mother sounds like she would probably want every dime she could get no matter what it did to anyone else. Your sd doesn't sound like she cares what happens to your other children. How old are they? If they are old enough if CPS did get involved they would talk to them. CPS would also take pictures of all the kids and check to make sure you have enough food in the house. Sadly I know this from CPS being called on me. I haven't had my kids taken away because they could see that my children aren't abused in any way. If you could get proof of her mother telling her to make up shit that would work in your favor. In a way her mother telling her to do stuff like that is considered neglect.
