Yes, given the facts presented, it appears you are entitled to spousal support a.k.a. alimony. A married person has a duty to provide support to their spouse. The Court will look at you and your husband’s ability to provide for your own needs. If you cannot provide for your own living needs the Court will likely order your husband to provide you with support for a period of time to allow you to recover from your health matter and allow you to start earning income of your own.

Make sure you have an attorney you are confident can argue to the Court that you are entitled spousal support.
