Unfortunately, it sounds like you are going to need an attorney. From the facts you have provided, you would not be obligated to pay her anything. In addition, you would be entitled to an equitable share of assets acquired during the marriage
. It is unlikely a court would order her to repay the money you have paid, but you would likely get a fair share of the marital assets.
You may even be entitled to spousal support based on all of the circumstances.
The state bar association can provide you with attorney referrals.
Please let me know if you need clarification.
