Marriage Date: 4-15-1990 in Orange County, Orlando, FL. There are no children involved. My husband wants a divorce, he lives in KY ; I live in Florida. We have been separated since May of 2010 (2nd separation) He has hired an attorney, I agreed to divorce and relinquished my rights to the house. He agreed to pay for my health insurance up to $300 per month until I reach age 65 or become deceased. I am in need of answers to 3 questions. (1) should he become deceased, would I be entitled to his SS or would his new wife? (2) He is a Union Ironworker & has an annuity. Would I be entitled to any of that? (3) Can I get alimony?
You cannot submit broad questions like that and expect any type of meaningful response. The purpose of this site is not to take the place of having an attorney. Your questions require facts that have not been addressed. You have not even indicated where the divorce will be filed! You need to hire an attorney. Good luck!

I agree, you should meet with a Florida Divorce / Family Law attorney if you plan on filing for divorce in Florida. KY and FL have different statues, this can change the outcome of your divorce.

As stated by my colleagues, you should consult with an Attorney who can evaluate all of the facts of your case and provide you with a Complete Answer. This sounds like a contested divorce since there are issues about Alimony and marital assets and liabilities. FL has equal distribution of the assets accrued during the marriage and the debts. You should speak to an attorney before forfeiting anything that you may be entitled with. The law in FL allows for discovery so you can know what is available and you can make a well-informed decision.
the divorce been filed yet? Is the divorce being filed in FL or KY?
This response does not establish an attorney-client relationship. This response does not constitute legal advice.
