      Lawyers need to get paid, no one does it for free.

      Only a very small minority qualifies for legal aid and is nearly impossible to get it. Certain condition apply like being indigent, disabled or suffering from severe and proven physical abuse.

      pay your lawyer like everyone else. Everyone goes into debt fighting for custody and getting a divorce. geez lady.

      she would have to prove her income and get her bills together. the worst thing they could say is no. go for it.

      The only way that she will know for certain is to apply for it. She can start here: http://www.legalaid-ga.org/GA/index.cfm/County/%20/City/%20/demoMode/%3D%201/Language/1/State/GA/TextOnly/N/ZipCode/%20/LoggedIn/0/so/1

      Her other options are to try to negotiate a payment plan with her attorney or seek the help of family and friends.

      unfortunately legal aide isn’t what it used to be years ago. she will just have to go apply and see what they say.
