My ex husband and I have shared custody of our son. I have him for a week and then he has him for a week. On his week, me ex has a family member that picks my son up from school. I have been told by teachers and parents, and other witnesses that she is telling them that I abuse my son, that if he continues to live with me I will cause him damage, and also is making other untrue statements about me to them. I am very upset by this and we live in a small community. I have actually been denied places to rent, and employment due to the things she is saying. The worst part is that she is saying these things in front of my 4 year old son. Can I get an order of protection against her and if not, what steps, if any can I take against her to get this to stop.
