You would need to file papers with the local court seeking a divorce. Alimony can be awarded while the divorce case is pending. You are legally entitled to file these papers yourself, but because this is a complicated area, you should first try to find an attorney to represent you. If you cannot afford to pay an attorney, you may be able to receive free assistance from a local "legal aid" clinic. To find a local legal aid clinic, you can try the phone book or using this Web site. You can read more about alimony and how it is determined here. Good luck.Posted 4 years ago #
