I would ask a qualified lawyer who understands your situation, not random Yahoo people.
Answer #2 | 23/07 2014 15:43
If you are incompetent , unable to maintain gainful employment , have no education or job skills and live in a Liberal state then you probably are . If in those 22 years you have had a job , if you have marketable skills and are capable of working ,,,, why do you need alimony ?
Answer #3 | 23/07 2014 15:26
Depends on your state, if you have a job, how much you make compared to your husband, and the circumstances of your divorce.

Look up divorce laws for where you live (your country or state if USA) and see if there's any mention of it. Alimony is rarely awarded these days, because people are typically capable of supporting themselves, so unless your circumstances were unusual (you were a stay-at-home partner and/or your spouse had a very high income so that you were accustomed to a particular lifestyle, chances are you won't get alimony even if your state does sometimes grant it). Your divorce attorney can better answer the question of whether or not you have a reasonable chance at receiving any.

I am divorced and got my alimony for only a year. That is money for me to live on until I found a job and I was married for 25 years. I live in Georgia but it depends on what state you live in. You can find a lawyer who will give you free legal advice and ask what you are wanting to know. I did that before my divorce was filed.

in most states, it's called maintenance and it is given for a specific number of years

You need to post way more information. Did you work during your 22 year marriage or did you stay at home and raise kids? Need much more information please.
Answer #8 | 23/07 2014 17:49
Depends on the state law where you live and the grounds for divorce.
Answer #9 | 25/07 2014 09:44
It depends on what the laws says. Laws differ from place to place. Nobody can give you any meaningful advice if you don't even say what state you live in.
