I was in a default divorce hearing, I was in default. Spousal support was not ordered to either party. My ex-husband and I were married for 22+ years. I supported him while he got his bachelor's and masters degrees. I supported him in his profession as a minister throughout the marriage. I worked part-time jobs throughout the marriage while also having our three children who I was the primary caregiver to. I obtained a GED, however never received any professional training or degrees. With his salary, housing, medical and many more benefits he makes $70K plus per year. I believe I am entitled to spousal support, but the judge did not order any. I am currently living below poverty level and at some times have been homeless due to my lack of resources. How do I get spousal support?
