I’ve tried Googling this, but I guess I’m not using the right searches, because all I’m getting are personal “horror” stories. I found something similar in the community’s archives, but I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for.
I have two characters, in modern Germany (Munich), who are living together, unmarried (not sure if that makes a difference), and have a two year-old daughter (hers, not his). One of her exes makes an unfounded call to CPS out of spite.
What’s the procedure that CPS would follow in Germany? How long would they be under investigation before they were able to clear their names? When the ex made the call, would he be required to leave his name? Would they be able to ask who it was who made the report on them?
