If my wife has filed for divorce after just 4 months ofmarriage and is already with another man, will she be entitled to alimony?

My wife and I were married. She left a man to be with me and after about 4 months she filed for divorce. She went back to that man and is living with him. She had pictures on-line of she and this man together but has deleted them because she is scared of not getting alimony. Is she even capable of receiving alimony if the marriage was so short? And with her being involved with someone else?

There are many factors to determine alimony. Typically, in a short term marriage a spouse is not entitled to any alimony. In CA for example, a couple has to marry more than 10 years before getting alimony. Check your state law for sure.
