Ex-wife and I divorced in Indiana and both moved to Chicago.
Since you both live in Illinois your ex-wife could seek to have your judgment enrolled in Illinois. If she did so, then she could seek child support under Illinois guidelines. The court would likely enroll the previous award of child support in Illinois as Indiana would no longer have an interest in enforcing the order since neither of your reside in Illinois.
Read your Judgment for Dissolution. It may be possible that even though you can and should move your case to Illinois, whether Illinois or Indiana child support guidelines are followed will be dependent upon your Judgment. If it is silent, you will probably be able to apply Illinois law once your case is transferred here.
