Greetings. First, I want you to know that I believe you have been tremendously strong and courageous to come and start asking these questions. I know that you have been a supportive spouse and helped to turn your husband’s illness around so that he is the functioning person he is today.
Now, you may be liable for alimony for a time, depending on how financially dependent he is on you. I would immediately go and speak with an attorney, so that they can help you understand your rights and prepare for the deparation. Best of luck, and please keep your head up.
