Your question cannot be answered here because it depends on too many other things. The best advice I can give you is to consult with an attorney. If you have already been served with the complaint for divorce, consider whatever she is asking for in the complaint as her "wish list." In a complaint for divorce, the plaintiff often asks for everything but rarely does either party get everything they ask for. If the parties cannot resolve the issues themselves, then a judge will do it for them.

Asking for and getting are two different things. First it depends what state you are in. Most lawyers give a free consultation. Call a couple and find one you feel comfortable with.
