Funding for legal fees is available from a small number of specialist finance providers. They offer loans to help clients pay their legal bills. Funding is also available for mediation and family law arbitration.
Generally, you should expect to pay a higher rate of interest then on a High Street loan. However, some providers do not expect you to make any payments towards the loan until the conclusion of the case. This has very obvious advantages for clients who are on a low or no income.
The finance company has to be satisfied that you will be in a position to pay off the loan at the conclusion of the case and will rely on the information provided by your solicitor.
Many solicitors are in a position to assist you in obtaining legal finance. I have a number of clients who would have been unable to pursue their claims successfully without this finance.
