Q: Im the husband. im dissabled for i have m.s. my wife asked for a divorce i dont workcan i get suport from her 25 yearsm
A: Idaho allows for spousal support in certain circumstances. Idaho Code 32-705 says that support can be awarded if one party lacks sufficient property with which to provide for their reasonable needs AND is unable to support themselves through employment.
You can always ask for support and if you meet the above criteria you may well receive it. However, often when spousal support is awarded, and that is not very often in Idaho, it will only be temporary. A temporary award of support is most often given when the spouse seeking the support has no work experience or job training. The support will be awarded for a reasonable time for the party to get training or to complete their education.
