Can I help my friend file divorce forms with the court clerk?

If you mean can you take them to the court clerk to be filed, I guess you can. Anyone can. You can help him serve the papers. He cannot serve them himself. What you cannot do is help him with the content of the papers.
This is general advice. You are anonymous. If you PM me i won’t know what it’s about.
When you say “help file”... what does than mean? If you are filling them out for the person and trying to figure out what goes in the boxes, you are practicing law without a license.
