I'm not able to afford and honestly don't even know where to start to get the process going
A: Terminating a marriage is a difficult decision to make, even more so with children. If you file for divorce, you could ask the court for temporary child support, temporary spousal support, and for your spouse to pay your attorney fees while the divorce is in process. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to talk to some local domestic relations attorneys who can talk with you about the divorce process and answer your questions to help you decide. Many attorneys offer free consultations. After talking with some, then you can select an attorney with whom you feel comfortable.
