i have 4 minor children. i am trying to file for a divorce in nc. i was told i had to file in sc because i only lived here for 4 weeks, but a sc attorney told me to file in nc because i dont know where my husband moved too. im trying to get custody, but in addition to that the reason i want the divorce is due to domestic violence. he abused me for years last known on file with the police dept in nc was in 04 then have a file at a shelter in nc this year, trying to get a restraining order in sc because he wouldnt let me file one up here because the last time it happened was in sc. i have no income relying on family for everything and legal aid in nc wont help they said they dont do divorces and sc wont help either. i need advice. im afraid he will file for custody and then i will lose my children. what should i do? i need help we have no real assets unless you consider furniture, but i dont want that. i need an attorney but i cant afford one that is expensive. please help
