What typically happens to your case when you are not able to pay any further at this immediate moment, if you have been maybe halfway through the divorce process? Are you forced to continue the case without representation while the other side still has representation, or what happens? I am halfway through divorce proceedings. My husband has been able to borrow money against 401K to pay his lawyer but I haven't been able to. this has caused me to borrow from family and I no longer can. He will continue to have representation but I won't. What happens?
