Cool, now that you have posted the reason someone SHOUDL get it, it becomes even clearer that you WON'T or shouldn't get it:
"In suits for divorce, annulment and separate maintenance, and in proceedings arising under subdivision A 3 or subsection L of § 16.1-241, the court having jurisdiction of the matter may, at any time pending a suit pursuant to this chapter, in the discretion of such court, make any order that may be proper (i) to compel a spouse to pay any sums necessary for the maintenance and support of the petitioning spouse, including an order that the other spouse provide health care coverage for the petitioning spouse, unless it is shown that such coverage cannot be obtained"
You had health insurance.
"(ii) to enable such spouse to carry on the suit,"
Well, since the suit was filed and COMPLETED, you can't really claim that you couldn't carry on the suit.
"(iii) to prevent either spouse from imposing any restraint on the personal liberty of the other spouse"
Well, seeing as how you LEFT the area, this is not a factor.
"(iv) to provide for the custody and maintenance of the minor children of the parties, including an order that either party provide health care coverage for the children, (v) to provide support, calculated in accordance with § 20-108.2, for any child of the parties to whom a duty of support is owed and to continue to support any child over the age of 18 who meets the requirements set forth in subsection C of § 20-124.2,"
No kids, so this is moot.
"(vi) for the exclusive use and possession of the family residence during the pendency of the suit,"
Well, you left the house, so you didn't have to pay the upkeep.
"(vii) to preserve the estate of either spouse, so that it be forthcoming to meet any decree which may be made in the suit, or "
No estates to preserve, so this is moot.
"(viii) to compel either spouse to give security to abide such decree"
The divorce is OVER, this is not a factor.
You are seeking alimony that is meant to help the none earning spouse survive the actual divorce, but you are asking for it after the divorce is ALREADY OVER.
Why give a "senior" discount, they have had plenty of time to raise the money...
