    Answered . You may also want to consult a lawyer because you may be surprised. Some attorneys are certainly willing to work with you on payment arrangements. And having an attorney handle the filing for you will leave with certainty that it will not come back to haunt you later. Also, I believe the most expensive part if you are filing an uncontested no children divorce is the filing fee. If you are truly without income you may seek permission from the court to file for free. You can do this by filing a petition of indigency. The court clerk may have one for your use. Good luck to you. I wish you the best in this New Year.
