Who legally has to pay for the divorce? 1 Answers as of July 19, 2011
My husband beat and raped me, and is currently incarcerated for aggravated sexual assault. There is also a standing protective order against him for both myself and my son. Is there any way I can get a divorce without having to pay given the circumstances?

You can ask the court to order him to pay the cost but that is just a judgement. The court cost and your attorney have to be paid up front and a court cannot order your spouse to pay the cost before a case is filed.
