After 10 years of marriage I discovered my husband has been having multiple affairs with women he meets on dating sites. For the first 7 years of our marriage my husband was unemployed and I covered all expenses. He is now gainfully employed and he makes six figures (or close to it) annually.
We would need to know a lot more about your financial situation. Mainly, do you have a need for alimony. Just because he now makes close to six figures, does not mean he will automatically have to pay you alimony.
The answering of this question is just friendly advice, and in no way legal advice, nor create an attorney-client relationship. For legal advise you should contact an attorney with detailed information about your situation, so he or she can better assist you. - Scott Weiss, Esq. www.weinerweiss.com
Alimony is based, primarily, on need and ability to pay. From what you say you do not seem to have any need even if your husband can now afford to pay you something. Alimony is NOT to be recompense for financial issues during your marriage.
So, you should talk to your attorney about your chances of getting any alimony under the circumstances.
