A 28 year marriage raises a presumption of alimony if there is a need, you need to sit down and discuss that with an attorney, in light of your entire financial situation, in order to determine amounts. The UCCJEA affidavit is a jurisdictional requirement, it has to be filed with any action for divorce or the petition for divorce will not be accepted by the court.
