You have right idea here to file for divorce and seek temporary orders for custody of the kids and order her to pay support.You have the advantage now to do this since she lacks resources and has drug issues, etc.The custody orders protect her from taking the kids.Your lawyer can seek hearing on such orders quickly and you can move forward to divide property and resolve custody.Filing for you now is a good idea.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.

There are two types of custody arrangements in the state of Florida. Child custody can be awarded to one parent (known as sole custody) or to both parents (known as joint custody).
With sole custody, one parent gets legal and physical custody of a child. In a joint custody situation, both parents share legal and physical child custody. In Florida, joint custody is called shared parental responsibility, and both parents must approve all decisions related to the child. In this situation, one parent is named the primary joint custodian and the other parent is granted visitation so the child has a primary residence, school, and a designated primary physician.
You have great facts to get sole custody here.
