About Family Finance 

RateSetter Family Finance loans are designed to assist with legal costs for people going through divorce or civil partnership dissolution. We can also assist with children proceedings running concurrently.

Applications are made on the behalf of the client via their solicitor. Approved clients are provided with a credit limit which the solicitor can request to draw down from to cover their invoices. The client is only charged interest on each amount drawn.

Key features

  • Eligibility checks without impacting a client’s credit score
  • Credit limits from £10,000 to £500,000
  • No monthly repayments – capital and interest payable in full upon settlement of your case
  • Fixed interest rate with no additional fees
  • Decisions on applications made within 3 working days
  • Invoice payments made directly to the law firm next working day after the client has authorised the request
