In some cases, you might also be entitled to receive spousal or child support from your husband. This depends on who made the majority of the money during your marriage and what your incomes are after the divorce. If you were a full-time stay-at-home mother while your husband worked, you may not have job prospects. If you are unable to get a job, your husband could be required to continue to support you financially. This is also true if your sponsorship agreement is still in place (that is, the standard three years are not over). Also, if you have children and you are taking the role as their primary caregiver after the divorce, you may be able to receive money from your husband to support your children. This kind of financial support would most likely come in the form of monthly payments. You can come to an agreement with your husband privately or you can go before the courts to have a decision made. You should a lawyer before making any decision.
