Wow, that would be terrible. I would have your friend ask DHS what the 'complaint' is about. If it is something valid, then I would advise friend to take care of the issue and make sure it does not happen again. If it is some nonsense claim then I would have friend's husband talk to his mom and tell her to knock it off! Let her know that the calls are unjust and if she keeps it up he can and will take legal action against her, and she will not be allowed to see the children again. I would check with DHS and see what can be done about her calling in false complaints -- I am surprised they don't come back on her and tell her to cut the crap and stop wasting their time with false calls. I would also contact the police and see if there can be a restraining order or harrassment order put against her.
I wish your friend good luck and hope her mil will just back off and leave her alone!
