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.
