Alternative funding - divorce

Funding a divorce can be difficult for many unhappily married couples. Since the legal aid reforms removed funding for many, solicitors have looked for alternative ways for couples to pay for a divorce. Our family law team introduced a fixed price divorce and in a bid to further increase accessibility to legal advice are now offering the option to agree a loan through Novitas Family Loans.

Novitas Family Loan

A Novitas Family Loan allows qualifying individuals who would struggle to pay for legal services and court fees up front to repay the loan at the end of the legal process from the proceeds of the settlement rather than staying in an unhappy marriage whilst they save or incur debts from elsewhere.

In many relationships, particularly those which involve children, one partner can be the sole breadwinner while the other forfeits their own income to stay at home and look after the children. But if the marriage comes to an end, the non-earning partner can be financially isolated and may feel unable to seek legal advice for fear of the cost involved.

This issue has lead to an increase in people representing themselves in court. Funding a divorce through Novitas is particularly helpful for people in this situation with no regular income, yet with sizeable assets, so that when the legal formalities are resolved, their loan will be paid off upon settlement, and they can move forward with their lives.

For more information on funding a divorce through a Novitas Family loan call our specialist divorce team on 0203 816 0548 or complete our online enquiry form and a member of the team will contact you directly to discuss the options available to you.

Our Trustpilot reviews

The level of service that was provided was excellent and one which was professional, understanding and the most important for me was empathy. I myself am a very organised individual and like things done on time without delay, Stephensons understood this and respected what was important to me and for children.
