Dear frustrated:

Greetings. Don’t get silly. You are not in any way entitled to alimony/spousal support. If you want to pay some, then negotiate with her/her attorney about the amount. Otherwise, don’t ask for it, as you will only be giving it to your spouse sooner. Good luck.

I apologize I was being a smart*** about the spousal support. She is asking for it. I am currently paying child support (1500.00), house payment (1300.00), loans on house, cc, etc.(1200.00). She is asking for an additional 1500.00 for spousal support. I am living in a semi empty house, because she clean, and I do mean cleaned it out when she left. In addition to all bank accounts. She did leave me a bag of trash, took the can !!! I try to buy a little piece of furniture here and there. Did manage to get my girl’s room set back up, but how much more am I going to have to give to this woman? Help!!

Dear Frustrated:

Greetings. Are you paying pursuant to a court order or a separation agreement? Or, are you just paying because that is what your attorney has told you? Thanks.

Is it possible to file for spousal support/alimony if ED has not been decided yet? I make three times the money my wife makes, but the only thing that has been decided in the whole divorce is child support. I am paying for the house, all debt etc. from the marriage.
