What If Your Spouse Has Money, But You Can't Even Afford An Attorney?

Maybe you married your high school sweetheart and decided to stay home with the kids while he attended medical school, dental school or law school. You supported him and created a home for him for years, relocating multiple times in order to advance his career. Now, decades later, he's demanding a divorce and you don't know where to turn.
