Child support obligation/Alimony possibly?

My question is two part. My husband and I have separated, he is unemployed, due to being an alcoholic and unable to hold a job, due to his addiction. He has been to treatment but is currently relapsing. Is there a possiblity that I will be required to pay him alimony and if yes, why?

Second, I am left with all financial responsibilities and 4 children. Is he responsible to pay child support before a legal separation or divorce is final? I qualified for day care assistance and am curious how he can be held responsible w/o the state having to help me.
