Greetings. Do not worry, he is lying to you about you receiving nothing. How much more than you does he earn? If you were working full-time, what would the difference in salaries be?
Alimony helps wives who make less money than their husbands after a long marriage - which usually involves the wives raising children, etc.
He is lying about the house and 401(k)…you probably will keep the house and get 1/2 of all his retirement and investments. If he hits you, call the police.
Your best bet is to save us some funds on a credit card (apply for one in your name) and to hire an attorney who can assist you. Keep your head up and find out ALL your legal rights, instead of trusting him.
