Alimony all depends on what country you are in. In Australia we don't have it. Once you split, your on your own. The government does help though.

Depends on what your court orders state.

Sometimes a SAHM will be given spousal support for a year or until she can find a job. However, only a judge will rule on that issue.

During the divorce proceedings, you could ask that he pay alimony and child support. You aren't guaranteed alimony. You should be guaranteed some kind of child support, if you are the primary caregiver for the kid(s). Until it's ruled on by a judge, he doesn't have to give you anything.

All he is legally obligated to pay is child support. He doesn't have to pay for your bills.
