If your daughter is competent she can file for a "legal separation" and temporary spousal support.
The legal separation keeps them married (in case there is health insurance or something else that she needs through the marriage. The Courts use a formula to determine the spousal support. The Spousal support is consodered temporary while the proceeds are ongoing and can be made permanent at the close of them.
If your daughter lacks the capacity to initiate the action you may seek to become her guardian andintitate them on her behalf.
Also in some circumstances the court can direct one spouse to pay the attorneys fees of the other.
It would be a good idea for you to consult with a local family law attorney to assist you. Most attorneys who do this work will meet with you to assess the case at little or no cost.
