I have been separated from my ex husband for 4 years now, we have been dvorced for 2 1/2 years. I would like to say that he is out of my life but I still have to send my kids there and I always run into one of his family members when I am out, like at the store, or park and and around other places. I hate having to send my kids over there. Him and his family has had CPS called on them more times than anybody I know. His younger sister's ex BF raped my son and daughter they are 4 and 8 and now she is engaged to a man that is not much better than the old BF, and I don't even believe that she is not in contact with him anymore and he hasn't even been arrested yet. My ex husband doesn't really watch the kids close when they are around him and I just don't trust him or anyone in his family. His nephew just recently had to have 11 staples in his head and it got infected and they had to cut the dead skin away and now he has to have skin grafts. They are all so stupid, and cheat on their spouses, and always leave their kids with other people. They are uneducated, and have no morals, it is so tough and frustrating knowing they are in my kids life. His little sister has 2 kids and she is 20 and she is never the one taking care of them. She leaves her 4 year old with her mother for weeks at a time and dosen't even let her know when she is coming to get him. I am really scared about how my kids might turn out being around these people, and I am scared for there safety, they have already been through enough.

Definately take him to court if it's not you and it's a doctor calling then a judge will be more likely to take notice. Make sure you keep a diary of everything that happens. The CPS has been called on a number of occasions action should have been taken. Get legal advice talk to the doctor and CPS and do what ever it takes to get them out of there permanantly.

Oh honey...go to CPS!!! This isn't even a question dear...it's just a reassurance that you already considered going to CPS. Otherwise you wouldn
t have asked the question. This is your children's lives. Take care.

They sound very crazy... One question to ask yourself is, is that the kind of influences you want your children to be around? First thing is if your ex has your children around a bunch of child molesters then that right there is enough for him to lose his rights. I would call CPS and talk to a social worker and see what they think, because they may not want your children around his family since CPS has been involved SO much.

My ex's family is not quite that bad, but they're still not an influence I want my daughter to grow up with. Con artists and thieves mostly. My ex is one of the few good eggs. I moved back to my hometown when we split 2 years ago and haven't seen them since. Just my ex, who moved to a city 2 hours from here so he didn't have to visit our daughter from another province. Do whatever you can do to make sure your ex has supervised visits only.

@ Diane, I don't know. Maybe a couple of time but not every time. My ex's brothers daughter was taken away for a while and my ex was found to be neglectful. It is not me calling CPS, they should take it seriouly when the doctor calls 3 different times on the same family.

CPS is usually used most often to get revenge even the social workers know that. I hope you are okay did they unsubsitate?
