Yes, you can file for a divorce without an attorney. It may be possible for you to consult with a local attorney just to review the divorce packet with you so you understand what you need to do. That should not be too expensive. You can search the attorney profiles here on Avvo to find someone in your area. Good luck!

I would highly recommend that you seek the assistance of an attorney in this matter. However, you may file for divorce and proceed on your own as a Pro Se Party. The divorce may become complicated since there are potentially three children that will be involved in the proceeding. Furthermore, since children are involved you have the additional consideration of custody.I thoroughly understand your economic situation. The best advice I can give you is to try to find a law firm that offers document drafting assistance for Pro Se parties. Law firms provide this service for people who need the help of an attorney but who cannot afford full representation. Also, you may want to consult with an attorney about what forms you need so you are better able to fill them out for yourself. The costs for these services will depend upon the particular firm, and the exact factual situation surrounding the divorce. However, they will be substantially less than full representation and may be affordable for your situation. If you have any additonal questions feel free to call my firm, we will provide you with a free 20 minute TELEPHONE consultation. Best of Luck.
