Have a consult with an attorney. A lot will depend on whether or not there is proof that you were not properly served. Also alimony is NOT a guarantee. It is dependent on several different factors. Was the divorce in Arkansas? How long ago was the divorce granted? Were you living with your spouse at that time? If not, how long had you been separated? How were you supporting yourself if separated? Did you know where your now ex lived? Did your now ex know where you lived? Do you two have mutual children? What is the difference in your incomes?Arkansas and yes I'll be able to get an attorney
There are some factors mentioned by Curenton that work in her favor if she is looking to collect alimony. One is the length of the marriage and the other is her disability. Although the trend is to not award alimony or, if awarded, to limit it to "rehabilitative" alimony or short-term alimony, alimony can still be awarded. It is certainly something Curenton should seek.You should also know that alimony is pretty rare in Arkansas. As a 55 year old in the state I've know many people here that have gotten divorces and in only one case that I can remember was alimony granted and it was a case where the wife worked and put the husband through medical school and continued to provide a majority of the family income until about a year after he got his very successful practice started. He filed for divorce about a year later.
