He was a very abusive man, mind-controlling, mentally abusive, and physically abusive. When I divorced him in 2007 he threatened me that if I got a lawyer and I tried to go for alimony he would make the divorce last 5 years and make my life miserable every single day.
He was already seeing someone that year since July of 2007 and choking me, stalking me, and trying to find out if I was seeing someone before we got divorced. This man for the first 8 years of our marriage cheated on me and gave me an STD, which resulted in my son coming out mentally retarded and I me having to have a hysterectomy.
I went through a lot with this man and because he threatened to make our divorce last 5 years and make my life miserable, I knew what that meant. Can I now sue for alimony?
