spousal support after 20 years
      #42294 - 11/07/05 08:40 PM

What do people mean by abuse? Is verbal and emotional abuse a reason to trash a marriage as some say? I am not respected and I feel I have worked very hard for 22 years of our marriage so he had to do nothing but focus on his career. I just became a secretary and now he wants out and is abusive. I make 23,000 and he makes 124,000. Shouldn't I be entitled to spousal support because I can't live on my income and he is where he is because of me? We have 2 kids aged 11&17 that are afraid of him. I want to fight to keep the standard of living they are used to or at least close to it. He wants to sell the house. He is verbally abuse of kids and has a violent hair trigger temper.

typically the courts will allow spousal support for 1/2 of the length of the marriage.
