    Answered . You said you need a pro bono lawyer. How do you know you can't afford to pay one? Have you tried shopping around? Have you tried contacting legal services? You have several issues to address given that you have a child with your husband. Parenting time, child support, possibly alimony among others. Why do you want to get divorced?

    You can try the state judiciary's website and click on legal forms. Scroll down to divorce and see if you can fill out he forms yourself. www.judiciary.state.nj.us

    I urge you to try and seek legal representation, as divorces are emotionally draining, time consuming and possibly contentious. Good luck.

    Answered . I think you should specifically consult a matrimonial attorney because there are a lot of issues to discuss in your matter (especially the removal) and whichever lawyer you choose should be well versed and experienced particularly in family law . It is probably worth at least paying a consultation fee to get the information you seek, at which point, fees to hire that lawyer to handle your case can be discussed (as well as sources on where maybe you can find funds to do so). If you would like to contact me, I would be happy to schedule a consultation for you. 201-880-9770. www.rsfamilylawyers.com. Thank you.
