How does one get a divorce while unemployed and the spouse makes all money?

Asked over 4 years ago - Omaha, NE

Im not employed but my husband is. I want to file for divorce, but he restricts my access to funds to even pay for the retainer. Are there any other ways to get around that so I can file?

    Answered . You may have to borrow the money from a friend or relative to get started. You just need to get into court and request support and then hopefully you can begin to repay them.
