Lawyers are only appointed by the court if there are no other means representation. There is an application process for this, with minimal fees. But in your case, you would probably not qualify. Your best bet would to hired an attorney.

You can apply at Legal Aid, but your income has to be really low for them to accept you. If they can't help you, then contact your local bar association. They should be able to refer you to local service groups for assistance. There are several states where a requirement to maintain your law license is to handle x number of pro bono cases a year. Most cities have a free attorney at their court house one day a week to handle family court matters. Ask if yours does. That lawyer will not be able to represent you in court, but they will be able to guide you through responding to all court filings and give advice on what you should do as you represent yourself.

You are given a public defender only if you are charged with a criminal suit. Divorce and custody cases are civil suits so you do not get a free lawyer appointed to you. You can try applying for some type of aid but you can't just get a free attorney.

They're called "public defenders", but they're for criminal cases.
For a custody case they're called "uncle jimmy", or "expensive"

Free lawyers are only appointed by the court in criminal cases and in a few situations where children have been removed from the home by the State (and criminal charges may result). In a routine custody and divorce case you have to do what the rest of us do - work and pay your way.
