    Try contacting your local BAR association to see if they can refer you to a free law clinic.

    Well this individual cannot marry someone else while he is still married to you. There are different agencies that help individuals with legal issues although they don't take every case. You can try contacting local law schools in your area to see if they have some type of legal aid clinic. As mentioned earlier, you can also contact the BAR to see if they know of anyone that can help you.

    You fall under a unique situation. You can walk away without ever filing for divorce and you will be treated by the court as never married (annulment). The legally operative issue is that you were mentally ill at the time of marriage. Not so with hubby.

    The point is, you do not need an attorney to get a divorce. Just walk away from the "marriage". You have an ANNULMENT UNDER OPERATION OF LAW - no fault - marriage never existed.

    Having said as much, it would be convenient for you to have the annulment on file for loan applications and so forth but it is not necessary.

    Be aware, by walking away, you will possibly be subject to fulfilling the affadavit of support you filed, with the government.
