Will I qualify for Alimony in Divorce?

Q: I recently found out that my husband of eight years has been cheating on me. He owns and operate a six-figure construction company and is the main provider in the home. Throughout the marriage He constantly complained about financial problems stating that the business is not doing well and that we are broke. As a result, He does not give me any financial assistance and no health insurance. He keeps his income a secret so I do not know how much money he has. Yesterday I found out that he has a mistress and have been financial supporting her. He has given her over a thousand dollar in the last two weeks including $400 for clothing yesterday. I have evidence of all the money he sent her. We don't have any children, I work a minimum wage job and amassed a small savings. I would like to pursue a divorce. will I be able to get alimony? 

What is the statutory minimum that I would be ordered to pay? Would it be fair for the court to consider my stocks and house?

Q:My wife and I live in and were married in NY. I was just terminated from my government job; I'm claiming it was due to a disability and have retained an attorney in this regard. I intend to file for divorce and know that she will get custody of our son and that I will have to pay child support. She does not work, and I have no current income, other than $3,000 in stock dividends yearly, and minuscule bank interest. My stock holdings are worth about $200k . I own the house, worth about $800k and intend to live there. I know that the standard for support would be 17% of my income, but I don't have a salary, not a pension. I have a strong case against the government, but it can take a year or more for my disability retirement to be approved, or denied, but my case is very compelling. I'm afraid the support magistrate is going to look at me as having a lot of money, but I have no steady and very little income flow. If I were to sell my stocks to help pay for support, I wouldn't have enough left to pay my taxes on substantial capital gains. 

My wife lives overseas and is refusing to give me her address to serve the divorce papers. How can I divorce her?

Q:I am a US citizen in NY, USA. She is in Ethopian now in Ethopia( not part of the Hague Apostille Convention). We have been seperated since 12/2008. We have no kids. I don't know where she lives. She reaches out to me once in a while and then disappares. How do you serve someone who doesn't want to be served? 

How can I know the status of my divorce case in NYC?

Q: My ex spouse filed for divorce almost a year ago and I haven't received any update. I called him since he is the plaintiff and He told me that his lawyer doesn't answer to his calls. The Supreme Court is in The Bronx and it was filed on June 12, 2018. I've been trying to contact the county clerk but no body answer the calls. Please any advise? Thank you!
