I am so sorry for the hell you've been through. I am not a lawyer, but I know this: Without any custody order in place, he cannot accuse you of kidnapping your own children. The other hand is that he could try and take you to court and say that you're trying to interfere with his relationship with the kids. If you decided to move away, make sure it is for work/a new job or something else that will improve the kids lives in some way (other than the obvious) I think it is most important to know that severing ties at this point may just be a long, arduous process.
Don't give up with CPS. I went through 5 different investigations/assessments with them with no substantiation. They are on the 6th and it looks like they are finally going to sub. Why? my daughter has been in counseling for years, the most recent bout has been intensive in=-home therapy ordered by CPS after the accused me of coaching her. It all came out in therapy -she is old enough and strong enough to talk about it, and that's what they need.Let them know that it is safe to talk about it.
Talk to your pediatrician about your concern, get your girls in counseling, and move out of the home as fast as you can, even if it is to live with your relatives.
Those are some of the things that you can do immediately to make it harder for him to abuse the kids. My ex abused my daughter (his bio daughter) during weekend overnights every other weekend for 3 years before I could finally get her away from him. So so sorry you have and are going through this, don't give up. Hugs, blessings to you and your children. elle
