Q: Would a decal saying “I record audio and video” work to avoid Florida’s wiretapping laws or would they even apply?

I live in Florida and drive for UberEats. Sometimes people approach my vehicle to pickup deliveries, but they never get in. I bought it as a precaution because I’ve had a couple near-miss collisions and issues with people harassing me when I deliver in low income areas.

The law to which refer requires you to notify other parties to a conversation that you are recording it. So it should work, assuming that you make sure the sign is clearly visible.

You should have a parenting plan which defines your time and his time. He cannot block you from having your time. If he does then you need to go to court and tell the judge. There is no "primary custody." The child is shared and you are entitled to your time per the court ordered parenting plan.

You can file for divorce where you live. Once she is served you can ask the court to order her to return the kids to where you live. The longer she is away and establishing the children in a new city, the more difficult it will be for you.
