A: Possibly. We would need to evaluate both your financial need and his ability to pay to make a determination of eligibility for alimony. I would suggest scheduling a consultation with a family law attorney to discuss your options.

A: There’s no way to tell you if you would qualify without knowing the details of your case. You should consult with an attorney who can review the facts in detail and provide you with direction. The judge will make a determination about child support and alimony once the details have been reviewed. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558
