One of my friends wants a divorce from her husband. They got married in their own country but came to the US for grad school. The husband and wife are both in the same state, but in different universities. My friend is planning to graduate soon and move to the Northeast (They are now in the Midwest). Being grad students they don't want to spend lots of money on lawyers, and don't have much property to split up. My friend told me that she had heard there were ways to handle the paperwork without the help of a lawyer since their split will be (sort of!) amicable. I have read a couple posts here were people did that, but I'm not sure how they did it, where they got the paperwork, etc. Would anyone be able to advise me? She also has a third option of using a power of attorney and filing in courts in her home country (legal costs are lower), but that would be an inconvenience for her as she is living in the US. Thanks!!
