    Louis’s Answer

    You need to retain an attorney ASAP because you ask a number of complicated questions. During the divorce, you can make a motion to have your wife pay you temporary maintenance but without a full analysis of the financial situation, no one can tell you if the motion will be granted.

    A divorce can be granted in as few as just a month (depending on the county) or may take as long as several years. Most uncontested divorces are completed within about 6 months.

    Louis’s Answer

    If your daughter is living with her father then you will likely be liable for child support. Neither the grounds for the dissolution of the marriage or either party's prior wrongdoing will play a role in that question.

    The spousal support or maintenance question may be much more complicated and you should speak to an attorney on that matter.
