Greetings. Yes, possibly. The law allows for alimony and looks at the length of marriage to figure out how much and how long to award alimony payments for. The only drawback to obtaining alimony would be the cost of attorney fees.
Although I should mention that with alimony, you also make a claim for attorney fees, so that may also not be an issue. Best of luck.
