The ex got primary custody and doesn't allow me to see or speak to my kids despite the court order. The state of Florida seems to allow this and I can only file a police report. I need this changed as it's not fair.
You need to bring her before the Court to explain her actions. The state of Florida doesn't permit this behavior. However, the police are powerless to enforce everyone's Parenting Plan. It is a civil action. File a motion for contempt.
By the way, we don't use that term "Primary Custody" any longer in Florida. You may have a plan with her exercising more time with the children, But you shouldn't think of her as having superior rights. Unless she did get, or you gave her, "Sole" custody. But that's rare. Most people enjoy "Shared Parental Responsibility" where you both must confer and cooperate to make major decisions for the child.

Long story short, our two nieces were picked up by me after a major incident involving PBSO. The next day DCF met with everyone and was happy the girls were going to be staying with us until the end of the school year as agreed by their father in ...
You can still proceed under Temporary Custody by Extended Family Member. You have the consent signed by the father. He may challenge you, and you would have to establish that he is unfit to be a parent consistent with §751.05, paragraph 3(b) “If one of the minor child’s parents objects to: The petition for temporary custody, the court shall grant the petition only upon a finding, by clear and convincing evidence, that the child’s parent or parents are unfit to provide for the care and control of the child. In determining that a parent is unfit, the court must find that the parent has abused, abandoned, or neglected the child, as defined in chapter 39."
This is where the "major incident" comes in. If he has abused, abandoned, or neglected the child, as defined in chapter 39 then you may be able to get temporary custody.
However, you left out some important facts. Where is the mother. As you refer to him as "their father" I am assuming she is your sister? Are the parents married? Did the Father ever establish his rights to the children through a Court order. Fathers in this state have no rights to children born out of wedlock until a Court grants them rights to the child. Florida Stat. 744.301 "The mother of a child born out of wedlock is the natural guardian of the child and is entitled to primary residential care and custody of the child unless the court enters an order stating otherwise."
I have a case very similar to this going on right now. However, I represent the father. Sadly, the children's mother passed away. Now the Grandparents are trying to obtain custody by Temporary Custody by Extended Family Member.
You need to talk face-to-face with an attorney who practices family law. There are many fine attorneys on this website. Some of us work on weekends, like myself, and you may be able to reach someone to discuss your case.See question

It's very simple. You have no rights until a judge gives them to you. Even if there is an agreement, even if you're on the birth certificate. You need to file an action in the Circuit Court right away.
Contact an attorney and get a consultation. Many of us work evenings and on weekends. There are many good attorneys on this site that would be happy to speak with you.
Good Luck.See question

There is a 14 year old child joint custody agreement. The father has not seen nor taken care of the child in 13 years nor made any attempts. The only reason why the father's attorney if attempting to re-enforce custody is because of child suppor...
You should petition the Court for a modification of time-sharing and parental responsibility. As the “father has not seen nor taken care of the child in 13 years nor made any attempts” there is a very good chance the court will grant this. I am assuming that you have an agreement that calls for the 50/50 time-sharing. This time-sharing was never exercised by dad. I advise that you consult with a local attorney. Many of us give free consults. Some, like myself, offer weekend or evening hours. You can find many attorneys on this Website. Start by reviewing the attorney profiles.

We wanted to surprise my daughter with adoption papers from her step father, my husband. Her Biological father resides back home in new England and has never bothered to make an attempt in her life ( he isn't even listed on her birth certificate)....
It sounds like you have a clear step-parent adoption case. The biological father has never established paternity or his rights as a father. He has failed to maintain a substantial and positive relationship with the child, has paid no support. Under Florida law there are certain things he must do to even get notice of this adoption.

What is important to know, and missing from your question, is if the property is titled in both your names. You can’t easily be forced out of the home if you are on the title, you have a right to be there, and unless there is violence between the two of you, the court will not give exclusive use to either of you. However, if you are not on the title, then he can seek exclusive use and eventually get you out.
Likewise, If you purchased the property together, and you are on the title, then the property is a marital asset subject to distribution. However if you are not on the title, then he has a superior interest. We would need more details about the property to respond better.
