Married in Vegas for 2.5 years, both of us are not US citizens. We are also living in different countries, so the husband asks me to quit my work so I can travel to see him whenever necessary. Regular days I live in my own residence owned by my parents and because I don’t work I have been blowing on my credit cards and now I am 10k+ in debt. He has not provided financial support unless I am with him when we are traveling. I want to know in the event of divorce,
1. Which set of divorce laws we follow
2. Am I eligible for any alimony as I have quit work for his convenience?
If you are not residents of the state of Nevada, you cannot file for divorce here. And even if you were, a 2.5 year marriage is usually considered too short to justify alimony.
