If I live in the Virgin Islands and want a divorce after 6 years marriage, what do I do if my wife lives in the states?

Question Details: Will I have to pay alimony? We do not have any shared property; I had a home here that was paid off before we were married. She has been in school for 5 years and will graduate next year but is only in school part-time. She is asking that I continue to support her for another 5 years. She has not lived with me for 3 years. We have no children together but I have 2 children that I pay child support for from a previous relationship.
