Legal Question in Family Law in Iowa


I just want to know if I am entitled to rehabilitative alimony due to the fact that I have basically been a stay at home mom for the past 13 years and really haven't aquired any job skills, how likely is it that a judge will grant me the alimony? My hisband claims that I am not entitled to 51% of his income and the judge will not leave him with very little to live on.

Re: alimony

If you were here in Tennessee, you could probably expect rehabilitative alimony under the facts you presented.... but I'm not licensed in Iowa, so to find out the situtation there, you need to talk with an attorney in Iowa.
