The Department of Children and Family Services investigation into allegations of abuse against Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva regarding their infant daughter Lucia will remain open until approximately Christmas, has learned exclusively.

A source close to the situation tells us, "The investigation will remain open out of an abundance of caution for the well being of Lucia. Both Mel and Oksana have been extremely cooperative with DCFS officials.

"They both love her and want nothing but the best for their daughter. DCFS officials have found absolutely no evidence of abuse by either parent directed towards Lucia."

As reported exclusively, DCFS officials are unlikely to charge either Mel or Oksana. They were ready to close the investigation, but decided it would be prudent to officially keep it open. The criminal case and family law case are both unresolved.

Celebrity Justice reported exclusively that the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office officially received the criminal investigation into Mel on Wednesday.

The Oscar nominated Braveheart star is being investigated on domestic violence charges and Oksana is being looked at on extortion-related charges. The investigation into Mel's allegations that Oksana tried to extort money from him is still being handled by the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department.

Mel and Oksana's next court hearing is scheduled for September 7.
