Re: Spouse support
She can always ask for spousal support but that doesn't mean she will get it. There are a number of factors the court must look to to determine whether to grant spousal support, including her need and your ability to pay. Just from what you told me it doesn't sound like she has a need and if you are unemployed you don't have an ability to pay.
