Looking for a divorce/ family attorney who works with low-income clients ( I am a freelance musician/teacher)

Q:  My husband and I live in NYC and have a 7 year old child. We have been separated for over a year and are getting divorced (looking to share custody). I am a freelance musician and teacher and I have very little money (and no resources for borrowing money). We have an MOU from a mediator but because my husband is making even less than me, much of the childcare costs are falling on my shoulders and I need someone to advise me about any choices I may have in terms of getting more money per month from my husband. I do not want to start a lengthy battle, or end up in court. I just need advice and some help negotiating a better deal, especially since our son lives primarily with me.

A:  David's Answer:  Some lawyers offer sliding scales on their fees and/or "consultation-only" arrangements. You should shop around! -- David Bliven, Bronx Divorce attorney (
