Hi there, my fiance was married before and had one son with his ex wife. They got married and divorced in WA state. Fast forward years later since then, his ex and son moved to FL and we (my fiance and I) moved to MD. So, when we talk about child support and divorce law, are we supposed to follow WA state law then or Florida or which one?
Also, we plan to get married next year and I make 3 or 4x as much as him and likely making more than his ex as well. Will my income be used to calculate his child support then? I heard that having everything separate (tax, bank account, mortgage, etc) is our safest bet, is this really necessary? Should I be concerned?
