In your case legal representation would be advisable since you have children. If money is an issue you can see if Legal Aid can help you. If not, check if there is a law school in your area since many run legal clinics that take clients for free/reduced fees. Finally, contact your local county/state bar association and ask if it has a list of attorneys who will represent clients "pro bono" (i.e. for free) based on their income/circumstances. If you want, you can file yourself; each state typically has an on-line website that contains information for doing so.
