Since this is a long term marriage, there would be a maintenance obligation. However, a monthly maintenance obligation can be bought out with a greater than equal award of the marital property, too.
She lives in Minnesota and I live in Wisconsin with the kids.

It is considered acceptable to rely on Badgercare benefits yourpremiums for group health insurance coverage exceed 10% of your net disposable income.

Depending on the length of marriage and disparity in earnings, you may be entitled to maintenance/support payments. You would need to file an Order to Show Cause for Temporary Order for a hearing for temporary maintenance. The Court will expect you to seek employment unless you are disabled.
I am currently getting my divorce finalized for the state of Texas. I spoke with a Texas attorney and was told I would have to wait 30 days to get remarried. I am fine with that. When I looked online for a Wisconsin marriage license, I saw that I would have to wait 6 months before I could get... Read more »

If you are divorced in the State of Texas, the law of that State will apply. That would mean that the waiting period to remarry would be controlled by the laws of that State, not Wisconsin.

Has there been a temporary Order entered awarding your spouse temporary use of the home? If not, you have the right to enter if you co-own the property. However, you may not engage in harassing behavior and must be respectful.
What can I do to stop this lie? Can I prosecute him after 18 months? Can I get an order of protection?

Your question appears to be, for the most part, questions of Wisconsin law, not Florida law.
My spouse and I are going through a divorce and child support is having me pay to my children's dad as he has open benefits from the government (foodshare).

If this is a Wisconsin case, I can respond. If it is a Minnesota case, I do not know the law in Minnesot since I am not licensed to practice law in that State. In Wisconsin, the State has an interest in the child support proceedings if a party is receiving State benefits. If the recipient is no... Read more »

The Hague Convention is useful in most situations, but you need a lawyer where the children are to file the appropriate action in the local court to determine.

Been married for 8yrs. Together for 15yrs. House was purchased and lived in by both of us for the last 13yrs.

Per our marital settlement agreement (Wisconsin), there is specific mention as to no child support (we both have fairly equal income) and no mention of "variable costs" anywhere in our orders. It does state that all medical, dental, eye, etc. bills/premiums will be split equally. I sent... Read more »

You should be offsetting the variable expenses... Read more »
DCF 150 has a broad definition of income and it's not clear if these would count as gross income for either the calculation of child support or any existing order that requires a reconciliation of support based on gross income.
answered on Mar 29, 2021
I do not believe tax refunds or federal stimulus payments would count as "income" for support calcuation purposes. Government benefits like food stamps, daycare assitsance, etc. typically do not either. This obviously isn't settled law as the stimulus payments are novel.
