My question involves a marriage in the state of: Illinois
Me and My ex were dating for 5 years, married for 1 year and 2 months, then separated for the past 5 months. She lives with her parents about 20 miles away. Two months after getting married she told me she was an alcoholic. I didn't believe her cause I never saw her drinking ever. Soon I realized she was drinking all day every day when her problem progressed. She also became abusive, quick working, dropped out of school, etc... She now has a job. I purchased a condo 9 months before becoming engaged. Only my name is on the mortgage and loan. I pay for her health insurance as well. She originally agreed to an uncontested marriage, and has no changed her mind. We have no kids, $100 dollars in our savings account, and only my name is on the condo mortgage (she did not contribute or help with any of the down payment).
1. Does she have any right to alimony for such a short marriage?
2. Does she have a right to any financial gains from the condo I purchased before marriage?
3. Is there a way to file, because of her hidden alcoholism, to nullify her rights to my financial assets (condo and alimony)
4. I have school loan debt that accumulated during our marriage, can that be used as leverage to nullify her rights to my financial assets (condo and alimony)
5. If I have evidence of her abusive behavior in the form of emails and texts, can that be used as leverage? I unfortunately don't have evidence of her slugging me while I was sleeping with a Yankee candle (a 3 lbs candle wrapped in glass).
