Are there children involved? Child support is always paid first.

Your marriage would likely be considered by the courts as a short term marriage, so if spousal support was order it would only be for a limited amount of time for your ex to get back on his feet.

Grace is right.

Spousal support may be a for a short term or perhaps a lump sum etc due to the relatively short marriage.

IT is not to often that you hear that husband are requesting spousal support but it does occur and the law provides for same.
