I can't bloody take it.

He's bipolar (not his fault) but his behaviour is damaging my own mental health

He's financially able to divorce and currently controlling me with this and various other threats

If you are on benefits or a low income you can apply for a fee remission (full/part) for the divorce application if you meet the income criteria.

You can lower the costs further by doing a DIY on online application (make sure you use a reputable company and know what you are paying for www.divorcebox.com is good)

Legal aid is available for mediation if you need help sorting out finances and kids, despite what people think it is not about getting back together, and worth a look.

I hope this helps
