My wife filed for divorce shortly before learning she had cancer and is requesting alimony.
We were married for almost 20 years and she was a stay-at-home mom for the most part, though she said she recently quit her part-time job because of her illness.
At this point, it appears the judge is planning to order me to pay all of her bills, including mortgage and medical expenses, in addition to the child support and alimony payments he is considering.
All of these additional payments will quickly bankrupt me.
Can I be ordered to provide alimony in such an excessive amount that I'm left destitute?
