My husband left me May 4th of 2008. I had to move from our living arragement in TX to AL so that I could be close to my family and have support taking care of our (then) 10 month old daughter (now 20 months) as well as help during my pregnancy(she was born Nov. 16, 2008). My husband will not give me a divorce even though he has been living with his girlfirend since June 2008 and though I'm not positive I believ both of her daughters are his (ages 19 months and 2 months). Now in my state I can prove grounds for divorce but I just want the quickest way out and to be done with this whole thing, which is where my problem is...I live off of $215 a month given by welfare and cannot afford a lawyer, I have called daily to the free legal service office but there are still no opening and wont be for some time. I was wondering if anyone knew what I can do...I heard something about posting it in the paper but I cant really find info.
I know here you can file as indigenent (unable to pay for court costs), The court house will give you all the forms to fill out for the divorce, plus the papers saying you can not afford to pay for it. Not sure how this works out divorce with kids.. but it's worth at try.
also.. here is a link..
fill out all the questions - print the forms.. and file. Tell the clerk you can not pay filling fees and fill out the forms there -
