My bf is going through a divorce neither of them have filed

My bf is going through a divorce neither of them have filed for divorce yet and the judge said that they can both see the daughter just switch her off til the final decision is made. Well the mother is neglectful and munipulating and says that if he does not sign the papers that she has then she is not gonna give him his daughter and it's his turn to have her this week. The thing is they both want the divorce but her papers say that he verbally and emotionally abused her and it's not true she cheated on him and doesn't want to look like the bad parent he said he has no problem signing but not if the papers say abuse cause he's not going to take the fall for something he didn't do can she legally keep his daughter away from him when they is no legal custody yet and she also says she doesn't care what the judge says she is not gonna let him have her unless he signs and she wants him to sign without a lawyer.

My ex-husband has custody of my daughter's children. He is

My ex-husband has custody of my daughter's children. He is sending them to see their father where my granddaughter was molested by another child. I am more than willing to provide a safe and stable home for my grandkids. The only reason I did not apply for custody myself is because I did not have the money to retain an attorney. My ex-husband is currently not taking my phone calls or answering text messages. My daughter is the one that informed DHR in Alabama Elmore County that my granddaughter was molested. The guardian grandfather has told her she will no longer see her children. This is due to her reporting the molestation. I feel the grandfather is unstable and the step-grandmother has been placed in a couple of Mental Health facilities. Someone has also attempted to convince the children that I am a bad person and they should hate me. I have proof that this same thing went on 30 years ago with my own child. Pike County DHR in Alabama received a tape from me of my child screaming that she hated me and wanted to live with her dad and she was only two or three years old. I took the tape to DHR and these fits suddenly stopped. They would only occur immediately after her visit with her father.History is repeating itself. . What can I do to help these children? My grandson throws up every day because he is a nervous wreck. And my granddaughter is in danger

I called the sheriff last night wrote a police report online

I called the sheriff last night wrote a police report online about the situation on how my ex is refusing to let me see my daughter using my past history of addiction as an excuse to accuse me of using again and I have filed custody and an emergency temporary custody order that he has been keeping her from me. Today he said he would meet me at the mall so I could see her for a little bit.i called the sheriff in advance that he had been keeping her from me against my will with no valid reason in doing so and that he was going to meet me at the mall so I could see her at 11 but that I intended on bringing her home with me that I do not agree to his terms of just visiting with her. When I first showed up to the mall he was holding her and I walked up to her and had my arms outstretched to take her and he snatched her back saying "you see her" then I said really Jorge you have been keeping her from me and you aren't going to let me hold her then he said you promise not to take off with her I said yeah sure knowing I had the sheriff on the way. I then said I wanted to play with her at least for a little bit in the kids play area at the mall and he said fine so I played with my daughter while he watched me like a hawk it was extremely uncomfortable and intimidating and then I said my parents wanted to FaceTime with her do I could call the sheriff again without alarming him and he followed me around as I was trying to make the call and I told the sheriff this that he was following me around a d no leaving me be and I was afraid when I went to take her to my car he would try to snatch her from my arms or interfer with me going to my car. At this point I had been waiting about a half hour for the standby. I then stalled saying I wanted to have a bite to eat with her and stall some more for the sheriff. While he and I sit down I have my daughter on my lap and she is eating my ex starts asking me questions about why I started calling the sheriff I told him because of his threats and his actions. Then he started to attack me verbally about how he is able to pick up my daughter on time and even though he is in school, works part time and in the reserves and that he would "let me," see her tomorrow. There are no court orders just the paperwork I have filed and need to serve him. He was telling me they needed to leave and I felt I could no longer stall I told him he wasn't going anywhere until the sheriff got there that I had called them. He said good and that he filed paperwork with the court about his concerns I said that was fine I had nothing to hide. The sheriff finally showed up asked me what was going on and I told them I had filed both regular custody and emergency orders and that he gave my daughter to me on Tuesday but has been refusing giving her to me since then and I was here to pick up my daughter and wanted an escort to my car that I feared he would snatch her out of my arms or interfer with me going to my car. They then told me I could ho with my daughter and they would stay and speak with my ex. I want to know should I just keep her until our emergency court date on may 4,the because I heard him say to the sheriff last night his lawyers advised him to keep her from me. I just don't want to keep my daughter from her father and I don't want it to look bad on me in court but I really fear that he will keep her if I let her go back with him on his "days"

Divorced 12/15 50/50 Shared Parenting, 3 kids (7,14,17)

Divorced 12/15 50/50 Shared Parenting, 3 kids (7,14,17)Location: FloridaSubject Relocation issueLast year in November, I filed a Petition to Modify Parenting time because my ex-wife did not adhere to the plan, which gave us 50/50 shared parenting. The kids were with me the majority of the time. At the hearing before the Magistrate two days ago, she revealed that she will be moving 360 miles away next week(!) and provided a Relocation/Long Distance Plan which I would never agree to. I was never given any Notice of Intent but only found out about this during the hearing for my modification petition 2 days ago. I was told that she accepted a new job and will be (temporarily) living with a friend that has a "big house" and she wants to let the kids stay with me for most of the time but wants them for all school vacations and holiday (e.g. all summer, all spring break, Thankgiving etc. every year) starting this summer.My modification petition was based on her living 5 minutes away and I asked to give her every other weekend instead of every other week because that has been the status quo for almost a year. Her moving 6 hours away obviously changes everything...Here are my questions:What is the proper procedure to object to this relocation? I am familiar with the FL Relocation Status.Doing some research, I came up with these possibilities:- Motion for Contempt because she failed to file Notice of Intent- Motion to Prevent Relocation- Motion to Object to RelocationWhich of these options should I choose or is there a better way to address this?She will be moving next week (without the kids), so I need to act quickly and want to file something by Monday while she is still in town.
