You need to immediately retain FL counsel to file for divorce in Florida. If you file anything in Indiana, other than to solely dispute jurisdiction, you might accidentally concede jurisdiction to that State. Don't sit on this.
FL has jurisdiction because the kids live in FL.
Under Federal law Florida is the only state that has Jurisdiction (Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act). You need an attorney who can object to Indiana taking any action and have the Indiana case dismissed. You may sue her in Florida.
