Alimony is basically based on a spouse's assets, liabilities and the ability to support themselves. And NO, that doesn't count supporting the boyfriend ... LOL!
Without the child and that she's able to earn $38,000 a year, I doubt that she would be awarded any alimony.
Ditto, best to ask your atty.
I would cancel all my credit cards if they are both in your name and she has access to any of them.
My first wife spent over $10,000 on her boyfriend and put it on our CC. It was a hell of a surprise when I suddenly received an attachment on my paycheck after many months of separation.
It was not only embarrassing but it was also a NEW job. I was very lucky that I had an understanding boss because I could have lost my job.
It took me years to pay off that debt so don't let it happen to you.
