My legal responsibilities

North Carolina, USA

In 2007 I (m 71, retired) married a Chinese national (f 69, retired) while living in NY. I filled out a slew of INS forms in order for her to get her Green Card. We have lived together since. One of the forms I filled out was a I-864 Affidavit of Support which stated that I take financial responsibility for her. There is the possibility of a divorce in the near future and I would like to know what my legal responsibilities would be. If we split all of our assets in half she would walk away with approximately $220k not including contents of the house to be split up. She currently receives Social Security spousal benefits just over $1,000/month. Does that satisfy my responsibilities? Any advice or insights would be welcome.
