  • You can look up legal aid and see if they can take your case.

  • All states require attorneys to volunteer to do work pro bono (free). Call the courthouse and see where to sign up for that. It usually costs $40 one time only consult fee.

  • I am in the same boat! I have a HUGE post on helping me with my divorce. It has taken me 4 days + 3 day weekend to find a few. I am waiting from 2 law offices now. Legal Aid was my first RIGHT call I made. They got my info and gave me numbers to call for low income. I notice when you call the low income places they are more willing to give you phone numbers and keep passing them to you until you find some one. 211 from your phone has legal help too.
