The value of the assets you two gathered might be splittable. As far as spousal support, I am pretty sure in Indiana you have to be married for 10 years or more before they will even entertain that thought. Even then it is not real likely. He will end up having to pay for the kid that IS his, not so sure about the 15 year old.

Indiana does not stick it to the ex-husband as hard as other states.

You need to get some research done of division of maritcal property so you know what you're facing.
An excellent resource for self-represented people is

You can get your legal issues researched and answers provided quickly, help with forms, etc. without actually having to hire attorney to represent you. Good luck.
