No property together. I retired prior to us getting married. I'm not employed and she wants spousal support and my retirement. We have been living apart for the past 3-4 years. We were married in Las Vegas(where I live) and she lives in Ohio. Is she entitled?
She should not be entitled to your retirement as it was earned prior to your marriage. However, the income you receive from the retirement monthly may be used to calculate your total income in order to calculate spousal support amount.
It appears that since the child reached majority without any child support order in place, from either the family court or the district attorney child support division, you waived the right as you intentionally relinquished your right to child support by closing the support case.

Unless there's some waiver that you may be able to take advantage of. In addition, unless you have been grandfathered under 245(i),...Read more »

A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. At this point, you could reach out to local attorneys to discuss.

You mention that your breathing problems are documented. If you mean by medical records, those could be...Read more »
