See, you keep saying a YEAR after the separation, and from NY with no job, etc. You should not have HAD no job, because you CHOOSE to quit your job in Virginia. And yes, you CHOOSE that for NO reason.
I have been involved in MANY MANY divorce cases, two for me, and many for people I know, your story is the ONLY one I have EVER heard of where the police showed up and handcuffed the guy, with BLEEDING KNUCKLES, and tried to get the "victim" to drop the case. Also, I DO NOT, for a SECOND, believe that he was showing up at your JOB, and when you complained to the police, they told you to stop GOING there. I mean that is just flat out STUPID. I will NEVER believe they looked at a stalking victim, where the "stalker" had NO REASON for being at the location, and they tell the VICTIM to stop going to WORK. And if you DID that, you are just as stupid for agreeing to it.
Bottom line, my opinion as to what happened, you left NY for Virginia, it was not all peaches and cream, you wanted out for whatever reason, and used his rage to justify quitting your job and going back to NY. There was ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to quit your job. None, other than YOU didn't wanna BE there.
And if ONE DOLLAR of the $50K is for spousal support, it is too much, as you have a MASTER'S DEGREE, and were only married for 13 months.
On a less serious side note, as PROOF that you do not deserve any alimony, if you DID, Susan would be on here telling you how to take him to the cleaners. And if SUSAN doesn't as least THINK you deserve alimony, you SURELY do not deserve it.
Why give a "senior" discount, they have had plenty of time to raise the money...
