I have been married for 20 years, divorced for 6.5 years, only worked the first 5 years. I raised the kids full time. My husband paid for the uncontested divorce because I had no income and he said I don’t get alimony because we have debt. I didn’t want to rock the boat because he is emotionally abusive. The kids are old enough now to be out of the line of fire. I now want to file for alimony and part of his pension. The attorney no longer practices law, he may have gotten disbared.
The day the divorce was finalized he proposed to his girl friend of 4 years which I didn’t know he had a girl friend.
Instead of paying child support he paid the rent.
I am now living with my 19 year old son. I have no income. How do I go about filing for alimony and/or part of his pension or other payments I may be eligible for?
