You file for divorce in prison the same way you would file if you were not in prison. The main problem you have is availability of resources. Get a good friend to mail you everything you need. I would recommend a divorce kit from your local Office Max or Office Depot.
Is there a Law Library available to you? If so, the librarian can assist you. If no Law Library is available get a phone book (if you can) and go the attorney section and try to find a public defender-type attorney. If you can't get a phone book and you're writing someone in free world ask them to find a couple of addresses for you to write to. Sometimes you can even talk to the officers that work at your facility and they MIGHT help you...you're probably taking a chance there, but you never know. Don't try to establish an inappropriate relationship--waayyyy wrong idea. But there might be a boss or two that could give you some direction. * All state and federal prison system have contracted legal counsel usually referred to as Prisoner Legal Services. A divorce package can be obtained through this service. Ask the cell block supervisor, the chaplain or whomever is in charge of prisoner communications for the contact information. Incarcerated persons do not qualify for public defenders when it pertains to civil matters.

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 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). I believe the fee is $1.00. I know for a spouse to file to divorce an inmate the cost is a dollar.
