The procedure for divorcing an incarcerated spouse is the same as it would be if said spouse were not imprisoned. That being the case, the expense depends upon who the filing spouse chooses to be their attorney. There are no provisions for state assistance or a discount in legal fees based on a spouse being incarcerated. There are legal organizations that can assist in the dissolution of marriage process based on what the petitioner can afford.

The inmate has to ask for a law clerk to first draw up the papers, be sure to include an "indignet" (not sure on spelling) paper. The divorce papers and the other form are then submitted to the clerk of the court in the county in which that inmate is residing ( for instance if he were at Polk C.I. he'd send them to Bartow).
