Additional information is needed to answer that question. You have not disclosed how long the marriage was prior to the time you separated. You have not disclosed whether you have been supporting her during these ten years. You have not disclosed your financial arrangements during the marriage or what her financial situation is at this time. All of those facts are important to the analysis.
This also obtains elements of foreclosure law and issues regarding conflict of interest.
I strongly suggest you consult with a family law attorney in your area. Whether your spouse gets alimony, the type of alimony she is awarded, and the amount of alimony she is awarded depends on various factors.

I agree with the other attorneys, without more information it is impossible to tell you whether or not your Wife will get alimony. It depends on several factors. You should consult with a family law attorney. Most AVVO attorneys offer a free initial consultation. Call one of us today. Good luck.
