For alimony file application under section 121 crpc along side application for divorce.
Alimony depends on the income of ur husband and the no. Of persons depending upon him.
Better is to file a mutual divorce petition. U will save time. But before filing the first draft make a compromise deed.

The alimony/maintenance amount depends upon various factors like socio-economic background of the parties, standard of living, age and needs of the child, income of the parties, education qualification of the parties, monthly expenses etc. most importantly it is your decision whether to seek divorce by mutual consent( in case of divorce by mutual consent parties themselves decides amount of maintenance/ alimony istridhan dowry etc usually a fixed amount in two to three installments between themselves) or seek judicial separation ( in which you seek monthly maintenance/alimony through court on the basis of the above mentioned factors but do not dissolve the marriage but only seek that you be allowed to live independently from your husband either in matrimonial home or in separate accommodation)
