Is there any free or reduced legal assistance available?
Glad you asked this question! A good place to start is with friends, family or business associates who have been divorced. If they have someone to recommend by all means add that person to your potential list of legal advisers. Be sure to ask if the attorney does mediation, and collaboration in addition to litigation. It's important to know if they offer "unbundled" services too as that can save you some money.

For free or reduced fee assistance check with your local counties as most will provide at least one day a month for workshops or pro bono legal consulting. Also, check with the local bar associations particularly the women's bar in your state. Be sure to inquire if attorneys will provide "unbundled" services. That basically presents you with a menu of their services so you can choose what you need. It's a much less expensive divorce.
Many women are also doing their own divorces ( pro se is the term) and that's fine, but we always suggest having a financial and legal professional review any agreement before signing. You must be sure your legal and financial rights are being exercised!
