This would be a difficult case for you to represent yourself in court. You would have to have an expert witness that would testify that your ex-husband was abusive. Taking the child to AU will have the practical impact of cutting off any visitation for all practical purposes, so you would be asking the court to either modify its judgment or change the language in a Marital Separation Agreement. This is not a case that you will be to represent yourself.

Just because you live in Maryland, doesn't mean that your business has a presence in Maryland. If you don;t have a presence in Maryland and you don;t sell to Maryland residents you would not be obligated to pay Maryland sales tax. You would have to pay Florida sales tax for sales to Florida residents. As an LLC , the net income of the business would flow into your personal tax return and since you are a Maryland resident, you would have to Maryland state income tax on the net income of the LLC.
Generally, visitation is unrelated to whether the other parent pays child support. In this case, the father would have to prove he is the parent by filing for a paternity test. He doesn't have a right to visitation, unless he can prove paternity. If he proved paternity, he would have to file a motion for visitation, which he may get depending on: 1) age of the child; 2) the time elapsed since the last time he saw or had a visit with the child. The court could order supervised visitation.
