Legal aid board

i was told that i could seek assistance to serve my husb with a divorce since that is what he wants but will not action it via the legal aid board. I am unemployed for 4 yrs now by mutual agrmnt. When i got to the legal aid board they did a means assessment and because we have a house valued at more than R300 000 which is in HIS name i did not qualify for the service. My question is where does someone like myself seek assistance. He only gives me a R3000 allowance per month which pays my cell phone, household account and if i am lucky i have something left for myself from that. Pls point me in the right direction i am based in JHB.

Also is there a free lawyer service i could PHONE for telephonic advice if i am not sure of some of the suggestions my husband is making? pls advice on both the above questions...
