Separation is never easy, especially if your ex-partner has control of your assets.
Legal financing can be one pathway to moving forward, even when you don’t have the cash on hand for a lawyer.
That’s why we’ve partnered with legal finance provider Plenti, a Sydney-based company that helps everyday Australians fund separation matters.
Plenti doesn’t ask you to make repayments until after your matter has been settled, meaning you can use the assets from property settlement to pay off your loan.
Because you’re entitled to a fair split of your marriage’s assets – even if your ex-partner is currently controlling them.
Legal Funding FAQs
Yes, Plenti finances parenting disputes if they’re connected to property settlement. Matters that only relate to parenting disputes are not eligible for financing.
You can apply for a Plenti loan at any stage of your family law matter (even after orders have been made). Matters at a very early stage may be put on hold until we can get enough information to approve your application.
Your Plenti loan can be used to cover our fees (provided we approve your application), as well as court costs, barrister costs, and all other disbursements in relation to your matter. You can also use a Plenti loan to pay off money you already owe us.
Yes, Plenti does hard credit checks when you apply for a loan, which may temporarily impact your credit score. Having a bad credit score doesn’t necessarily mean Plenti won’t finance your matter – all Plenti financing requires security, so you may still be eligible for a loan.
Loan rates and additional fees may vary, but a typical Plenti borrower incurs average effective costs of around 8.55% of their principal loan amount over the life of their loan.
