I am separating from my bf after 2 years. We have a child together and I am unemployed. Can I ask for alimony and child support?
What does the law say about him providing an apartment for me and his child?
The answer is no. If not married, you cannot receive maintenance payments. If he is the biological father, you will receive child support.
You can not receive alimony/maintenance from him if you were not married. You can receive child support, depending on the placement schedule. He is not obligated to provide you with an apartment.
