You prob should not file for divorce until she is back to work.

The laws have changed concerning the monied spouse (you) paying for her attorneys fees, etc

and temp maintenance.

The courts will determine who pays for what debts and make that part of the judgment of divorce. Failure to abide by the judgment/order is contempt.
