I am getting a divorce. Been married for 13 yrs. and I am disabled for life. Will my husband most likely have to pay me alimony? We live in Florida.

Most likely yes. Alimony is based upon need, ability to pay, and length of the marriage.
If he has the ability to pay alimony ...then more likely than not. The court will also look at factors such as your available assets, his available assets, the customary standard of living, whether he also has medical needs, etc. These cases are very fact intensive. If you intend to request alimony I would suggest you meet with an attorney who can evaluate more specific facts of your case.
Alimony is based on the ability to pay and the need. Based on the info you have provided more likely than not. If you want to go over all of your options you should contact legal counsel.
