How does spousal support work? I know nothing about it but I'm considering filing for it and child support b/c exdh is being such an ass to me. He verbally abuses me, puts me down, insults me, laughs at me and constantly threatens to take the kids. I'm so sick of the way he treats me so I might just file to put him in his place.Answer Question

To receive spousal maintenance, a person must show that he or she meets one of the following requirements:
(1) Lacks sufficient property to meet his or her reasonable needs;
(2) Is unable to support himself or herself through appropriate employment, or has custody of a child whose age and condition precludes outside employment, or lacks sufficient earning ability to support himself or herself;
(3) Contributed to the educational opportunities of the other spouse; or
