    Answered . You have certainly been married long enough, but it’s still hard to say without seeing some very detailed financial records. I have written a guide about alimony and spousal support. The link is provided below. Attorney fees are possible, but usually not awarded until trial, if then.

    Answered . In most states the spouse with all the money ends up paying for both attorneys. Call a local divorce lawyer and discuss your specific situation!
