Ok thank you. I will do that. I have paperwork for a parenting plan. I don't know how to fill it out though so I'll need to go to the county attorney. I really don't have a choice but to file without hiring an attorney because I can't afford one.
I had post partum depression after my daughter was born for about six months but I'm not sure if this is worse than that was or not. I'm up and down all the time. Like today, I'm ok for the most part, but yesterday and Tuesday were pretty bad. I have no shame in getting medication. I just can't afford it...
I did my own divorce, with kids, because I couldn't afford an attorney, either.
In my state, the county will only accept certain forms. Other counties make their own rules. So, make sure whatever forms you have are acceptable to the county you'll be filing in.
If there is low/no income help available, use it! Also, clerks are Gods and Goddesses. They know more about how the system works and the judges than the judges do. So, if you get stuck, call and politely ask a clerk. They can't give legal advice by law here, but the will gladly point you in the right direction.
Here, if you're legally married the state counts both incomes when determining eligibility for assistance. Even if one has moved out or is denying access to the money. Once one or the other have filed for divorce, the spouses incomes are separate and the low earner who may need help would then qualify. Once you have filed for divorce, you may be able to qualify for assistance for yourself and your kids if you need help with healthcare. If not, look for sliding scale mental health services and sliding scale pharmacies.
Here, the county has a program through certain pharmacies to cover medications for the uninsured. My $89 a month blood pressure meds only cost me $5 through the program. When I was taking anti-depressants, I was paying $1. I joined the program through the pharmacy, but was notified it existed through the health department. Do some checking, there might be something similar where you live.
