Alimony in india

I have been evicted from my matrimonial house recently and I have been staying at a rent accomodation as husband was willing to provide an alternate accomodation. As of now court has granted me with a rent amount of one year in advance. On the other hand husband has filed for a divorce on cruelty and i have been contesting his divorce case. My fear is that if husband is granted a divorce on merits by the trial court then how will the judge decide on my alimony for my future? How will my future be secured and where will I stay for the rest of my life ? I have never worked after marriage.husband is working in a private company and he has a share in the matrimonial house also,financially he is stable. will the court secure my future as i don't want to remarry ,also will I be able to file an appeal in the Delhi High court & later in supreme court against his divorce case

While contesting your divorce case, did you seek interim maintenance (under Section 24 of HMA) ?

Alimony of wife and children shall be decided as per financial status of husband/ father.

What is the opinion and advise of your lawyer contesting your divorce case ?

Which court the case is pending ?

Presumably you are located in Delhi, if you feel, you may share details of your case(s) with me at my email I am in Dwarka, New Delhi.

Thanks to everyone for your opinion. I have not filed any maintenance application nor for alimony under the divorce case so far .i have been contesting the divorce case and i don't want to give a divorce . Just fear has crossed my mind.if husband gets a divorce on merits then will the trial court judge decide alimony for my future  ? Although i will contest the divorce case till the supreme court as well.if my husband gets a divorce then i will immediately file an appeal in the high court and later in the supreme court as well .
