Me and my husband haven't lived together since last May. I almost lost my life from a reaction from my medications. I don't have the funds get a divorce myself.

There are actually pro-se (do-it-yourself) packets out there that assist people to do it on their own, but the court and service fees alone run about $275. But also, if you only separated in May you cannot file for divorce right now anyway because you have to be separated for at least 1 year first.

Superior court facilities in Arizona generally have a self service center that has forms and instructions including those for a dissolution of marriage. At Maricopa.gov there is a link to an online self service center that also has these documents. Even with your circumstances you are well advised to at least consult with an experienced family law attorney.

    In Michigan, I would contact the Michigan Bar Association to see if there are any programs in your area. Generally, there is usually a legal aid office that one can use.

    Speak with the clerk of the Court, they will direct you to the appropriate forms and procedures. In August/September, you could contact the local law school to see if they have a clinic where the students will assist you in obtaining the divorce.
