Well in FL you can file a petition for dissolution even if you are "indigent". This means you do not have the money to pay and you fill out the forms and they verify you do not have the money , then your petition is allowed to be filed free of charge. Just get the information fomr the CLerk of COurt in the county you need the divorce in.

In Oregon you can fill out a application for a deferral or waiver of fees. If you qualify you will either have your fees waived or set aside for a certain amount of time..either way you can file without paying up front.

In Mississippi, my cousin was arrested and when he went to jail they suggested he get a divorce while in jail, they said it would cost about $15. It really matters on the state laws. I hope this was helpful to anyone that is in need.

You are a federal inmate in SC who wants a divorce from your wife in NC?

Just wait until you get out, or if she wants it too it'd be a whole lot easier for her to file for it since she's not stuck in jail. ADDED: I notice that your question doesn't mention that SHE wants a divorce from you. Although it would probably be easier for her to file for divorce in NC (if she even wants one) it IS possible for you to do it 'Pro Se' while in federal custody in SC (It's a little more difficult - But HEY, you've got nothing but time, right?). If she wishes to contest your request for divorce and if the two of you have any children it could really open a can of worms. If you have access to any legal aid while in prison see if you can get an appointment to talk with them. You aren't the first person to ever get divorced while in jail, so, it CAN be done.

The same way any divorce is obtained. People who are in jail (or being detained) can be served documents pertaining to divorce, lawsuits and so forth. If the marriage is legal the divorce petition can be filed in the state where the couple has established residency. Make sure you file the divorce while she is still in jail, right. I'm assuming it's easier than waiting until she's in another

What is likelihood of getting credit in jail served 12 days in FL after signing a waiver of extradition to TX on 12th day I was told TX has 10 days after person signs waiver of extradition to come.?

As soon as the jail you were in had a hold on you for your Texas warrant, you should be getting backtime. You may be responsible for proving that credit, so you'll need to get documentation. I've never heard of them only having 10 days to complete the extradition. Your waiver is in essence a request for speedy trial, therefore Texas has to get you here and tried within six months.
