Can't afford to pay an attorney


I am a stay at home mom with no income whatsoever. I can use my debit card but the expense is being watch by the person. I have been told to use the “do it yourself” divorce. Less expense, but on the other hand, I feel it doesn’t represent me. We can’t even agree on small things around the house. It’s probably worse knowing our children, property, and finances are involve in the process. What should I do?


If you are a dependant spouse you have a claim to have your spouse pay your attorney’s fees incurred on the issues of child custody, child support and spousal support. I would suggest you meet with an attorney to discuss your case, and how to go about getting an award of attorney’s fees in the beginning of the action.
