One option would be to contact the state bar association for a referral to attorneys who charge minimal fees for simple legal matters. The interested party could also contact the office of the clerk of the circuit court in the city or county of residence to obtain information on the proper procedures for filing a divorce petition. Or possibly a women's help center could be of assistance if there is such an organization in the community in which the person lives.
