  • I would immediately go the the nearest office of your state's Dept of Human Services or whatever they call it there. Apply for any and all assistance they can give and they will determine what you are allowed based on YOUR income. They will, of course, require that you inform them of the outcome of your divorce settlement once it is done, so that benefits can be adjusted based on any child support and/or spousal assistance that you end up getting. Ask your attorney about it if your have one. They should know.
