Dear Monika1:

Greetings. Please see our attorney fee calculator at the following link:

Legal aid does not generally handle child custody, child support, alimony, or equitable distribution claims, so no I cannot recommend any local legal aid agency to you.

If you are only trying to obtain a divorce, and not worried about child custody, equitable distribution, or alimony, then you can most likely file the documents on your own. Best of luck.

What is the average retainer fee for a divorce in NC? Are ther any legal aid firms you can recommend locally for these situations?
