Alimony is based on a few factors, including income but also length of marriage. How long have the parties been married to one another?
Right now, wife is very likely to obtain alimony. She can demand anywhere from 15% to 30% of the difference in their wages. Since the marriage is likely seen as a long-term marriage, she can even try for lifetime alimony although that is generally granted for marriages of 25 years or longer in duration--she can likely demand it from 50% to 75% of the length of the marriage, however.
