Your friend can file for divorce on his own. Once he files, he can request support from his spouse if she works. He can also request exclusive use of the home. He can contact the clerk in the domestic relations court to see if they have form that can be used to faciliatet the divorce. There are also a number of self-help books that are available. The public library can be a good source of these books. They are not designed for complicated divorces, but they are better than nothing.
