Greetings. You are entitled to alimony, but probably only a limited amount for a short duration due to the length of the marriage - but that may change based on information about your marriage.
Since he makes more than $200k per year, you would calculate child support based on the reasonable needs of the minor child…deviating from the child support guidelines. Your husband is in correct that you would get “next to nothing.”
If you want to prepare for an eventual separation, make sure that you take and maintain copies of the income information that you have for him. You can give the copies to a family member, your attorney, or a safety deposit box. Thank you.
