Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she learned her husband was seeking a divorce in an email from his attorney. The revelation came in an interview released Tuesday with Family Talk Christian ministry founder James Dobson, who said the interview had been conducted previously. Palin says she received an email June 19 from an attorney "saying that she was hired and that was on June 19, I'll never forget it." Todd Palin filed on his birthday in September.

She described the filing that came shortly after their 31st wedding anniversary as devastating, but she says "it's not over yet." Palin says they're going through counseling and their marriage isn't "over, over. Attorneys are getting rich off us." The AP reports a message seeking comment was left for an attorney believed to be representing Todd Palin.
