Alimony


#1

What are things that bar alimony? I have been told that I may not be eligible to receive alimony due to the fact that the divorce is something I want. Is this true? I’m a SAHM and obviously directly depend on him for financial support.

Marital misconduct, like adultery, can block an otherwise eligible spouse from receiving adultery. From the facts you presented, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t receive alimony. As a SAHM, you should have no problem showing you were the dependent spouse and that you will need some support from your ex to maintain anything like your prior standard of living. The fact that you wanted the divorce doesn’t bar you from getting alimony.
