Grace is right.

You have a responsibility to report this. You can do it in a way that you don't come off as a vindictive ex "using the abuse card". But you MUST report it. Be factual and honest. They can sort it out. While it might not be the ex sexually abusing his children someone else might be as well - the protective services need to know this.

I am in a profession that has mandatory reporting and I myself have reported suspicions in both my professional life and in my personal life. I could lose my license but also my self respect if i didn't do this.

But hey... What do i know. If you guys are comfortable with just suspecting abuse and not reporting it because it might hurt your case , I am sorry for the state of the world. No wonder we have so many girls and boys being hurt.
