I have no money as he works with a job over 80,000 a year and he has control of money. I have always been the primary care taker for our two young children.
How do I pay for a divorce, how do I monetarily survive and receive unequal distribution of child custody and monies? He has a very good lawyer and he will fight me. He does not want to pay any custody, no money to me or to pay for classes to help me get a job. We have house for sale and I have been told that is all the money I will have. I want to continue to be the primary care giver and I need money to raise the children and to take classes in accounting.
He will not communicate with me when I ask questions @ children.
How do women get the help they need without money to pay lawyer fees in a long divorce process?
Idaho statutes vest in the divorce court the power to enter temporary orders for support of children and spouses, which can include an order to provide funds for attorney's fees. The key to this strategy is finding an attorney who will commence representation without a retainer in reliance on successful pursuit of the temporary orders. Use the Avvo attorney-finder to help narrow the search for a willing attorney.

In response to your question, You must find an attorney who will work with you and give you options with regard to payment of fees. There is also laws that give the divorce court authority to require one party to a divorce to pay temporary support and the attorney fees of the other party while the divorce is pending.
