    Answered . I agree with Attorney Bliven, go to the Office of the Self-Represented within Bronx Supreme Court and have patience. If you want to avoid the "run around" you'll probably have to pay for a professional to assist you. That said, if there are no children or property involved, the help of a professional should not be very expensive. Good luck!

    Answered . The short answer is that all lawyers charge for their services, so if you wish to hire a lawyer for the divorce, the answer is probably not for free. You may qualify for "poor person relief," which generally waives the court fees. I thus encourage you to go to the Office of the Self-Represented within Bronx Supreme Court to inquire what assistance you can receive. If you are nevertheless looking to consult a lawyer for free, I encourage you to call a Bronx Co. Divorce lawyer to schedule an appointment.

    Answered . If you qualify for legal aid and wait until your name reaches the top of the list, then you may get a free divorce. Otherwise reach out to a reasonably priced divorce lawyer in your area. Court filing fees in the NYC area are $335 plus whatever the attorney charges. If your wife agrees to sign the paperwork and there are no assets to divide, then it is a simple and inexpensive matter.
