My ex-husband and his girlfriend got in a bad fight where both were injured. My daughter says that the fight was her dad's girlfriend's fault, and that her dad was just defending himself. (He was bleeding, his girlfriend was bruised from where he pushed her down.) Her dad called the police, and our daughter and their son were witnesses and gave statements. The police officer arrested my ex-husband and took him to jail, leaving my daughter with his girlfriend, who she's just told the police attacked her dad. The police report doesn't say anything about having talked to the minor children, or even mention that children were present. So no one has reported it to CPS.
What would you do?
Just to make it clear: the police officer improperly filled out the paperwork, so CPS wasn't contacted. There is a box he would have needed to check saying that minor children were present. I did go to the police station, and talked to two police officers, and one was a supervisor, and I just got the run around that my daughter might not have known what she was talking about, and how did I even know my daughter was there and how she would never have been left with his girlfriend, and I would have been contacted if she'd been there when her dad was arrested. I went to the state's attorney's office, and I cannot get a restraining order against his girlfriend. I had an emergency hearing for temp sole custody, and my motion was denied.
