Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
IF you cannot afford a lawyer on your own, you can actually have the court require your spouse to pay for your legal representation. You'd have to consult a lawyer and request him/her to file a motion asking the judge to order your spouse to pay for your lawyer.
You're right that it is not a good idea to proceed with a divorce without a lawyer.......but it is generally permissible to use one lawyer as long as you don't have any real disagreements about property division, etc.
