    You have to prove entitlement. Did you take time off, forced to quit your job, etc. It would be harder to argue on lifestyle alone.

      Your spouse making more money doesnt automatically mean spousal support. Unless you sacrificed your career for hers then you are out of luck.

        another question...wife has 100000 in personal savings account saved from within years of marriage, is it true i would be entitled to half of that, so getting $50000

          You would need to do a financial statement with a listing of everything owned and owed. From there, it is a split if assets.

          If any of the money came from inheritance then no it is not yours.

          She is also entitled to what you have including any pensions etc.
