I suggest you take moment to read what a judge states to a criminal defendant when the defendant wants to proceed pro se. I think much-not all of it- applies to anyone considering proceeding pro se. It can be found at:

You can file for divorce without an attorney, but I wouldn't recommend it since this does not appear to be an uncontested case. I strongly suggest you search for a lawyer- many offer free consultations.
