My ex has called CPS with false allegations and lies and I have lost my job over this. I am very upset. is there a way I can get my name out of their system? and my kids have a doctor in Oregon that isn't doing her job. my children have had skin problems to the point where it was so infected that it stunk... green crusties and socks stuck to feet. I don't have custody he does... isn't that doctor suppose to call CPS? isn't that her job? I didnt know about this till recently when i finally was able to obtain medical records from that doctor. I wan to get her into some kind of trouble because she didn't call or do something about this

If he's got custody, why is he calling CPS on you, and what for?

As far as the doctor question, how do you know it's her fault, and not your ex's for not taking care of the conditions? And, if your children were in such horrible conditions, why didn't you do something with it during the times that you had them?

I know you are angry about this but from what I have read of the posts you still did not say what your ex called in on you. And a few other things do not make a lot of sense. He kept the kids away so how could he call in things on you and get away with it? If you had not seen the kids in a while, how do you know what was what with the doctor. In the eyes of the law, doctors, teachers and such are supposed to report suspected abuse of any kind. And by not being there to see and know what is going makes it harder for you. Unless you have actual proof this doc did not do that for the right reasons, its not going to fly in court. You als need documented proof that he did not take care of the kids. You also need proof they were in any real danger with their father. Why did he really get initial custody?

The only reason he has them is because I wasn't ready for court. none of this came out... and it will soon and when it plainly says she had to peel my sons socks off his feet because they where crusted on them in her own words no doctors terms. is proof enough for me thank you I am talking to a lawyer now thank you, and it is enough you bet your pretty little face i am going to take it to the full extent and do whatever I can

Ok, but see, here's how this works: Lies don't make or break a case, and if CPS has investigated and cleared you of any allegations, your name is off the books. However, if he succeeded in retaining custody, there had to have been something truthful... I don't mean to be hurtful, but that's generally how it works. Lies don't fly.

As far as the practitioner, If you have solid, incontrovertible proof (just you saying there's an issue isn't proof) that the practitioner was negligent, then go for suing her. BUT: Unless you're a physician, and can read and decipher all of her reports, you don't really know the whole situation, even if you do have the file. Since you're the non custodial parent, you were not a firsthand witness. I would make sure you're 110% solid on proof, or she can turn around and bring a suit right back against you for defamation of character, among other things.

In my experience, there's always more to the story.

for one he called because I was going for custody of them. and he wanted to make me look bad... hence the reasons for the lies. number two it is her job as a medical personel to call on this she has seen my kids for 6 years and never once called CPS or any one else she should have called. if she was doing her job my kids would not of had the issues they have now. number three He kept me away from them I had no idea they had that bad of issues till I saw them last year and just got thier medical records a month ago. And I have tried taking them to CPS in my state but they cant do anything here because they dont live in my state they live in Oregon. and when i called it in there they laughed at me and said i was fishing for straws....
