Commonly, the costs of the divorce are shared 50/50 by both parties.
The only reason she might lose her Swiss nationality would be if the authorities ruled that it had been "obtained by using false information or by concealing material facts". That is all set out here:
If the authorities can prove such deceit, then it is highly unlikely that she would be allowed to stay in Switzerland at all. If she has not participated in any such falsifications, she remains Swiss and has nothing to fear about her citizenship.
For the citizenship part, see above. For the rest, she then has an obligation to society to do her best to continue to be self-supporting, and she must pay her own taxes and expenses. Once the divorce is finalised, she is also free to marry again, should she choose to. If the Decree of Divorce rules that she must pay him support, that is her obligation. If the Decree of Divorce rules that he must pay her support, then that is her right. However, see point 4.
This used to be the case. However, now it is usually true only when there are common children involved, so not in your friend's case. It can also be true if the marriage has lasted for a long time, and if the persons are aged over... I think it is 45, and if one of them has stayed at home for many years raising the children, while the other earned. See also a sublink of what Medea posted above:
No, I don't think so.
See links in the posts above.
Thanks a lot for the detail in info.
