Our Application Process
Your client fills out our loan application online. Our client service representatives will call them to review their unique situation and collect more information.
Once they sign off on the application, we can speak with you and secure the information and documentation regarding your client’s file.
Our Divorce Loan Adjudicator assesses the file to evaluate the claim utilizing supporting documentation, applying relevant legislation and their professional experience to determine the appropriate loan solution. If more information is needed, we’ll be in touch.
Approval and transfer of funds
Once approved, you and your client sign the loan documents, and we e-transfer the funds to your client’s preferred financial institution or directly to you to pay legal fees.

Frequently Asked Questions
The minimum loan amount is $5,000 and there is no maximum. The loan amount is determined by the adjudicator’s assessment of your client’s projected equalization payment. We encourage clients to only borrow what they need.
Credit cards incur additional interest charges and minimum payments must be met each month. If your client is already having financial difficulties, this may impact their credit score during an already challenging time. With divorce loans, repayment is made at the earlier of the payment of equalization or three years, removing the pressure of monthly budget management.
The loan can be used to pay your fees directly, which we arrange on their behalf.
The loan can be used for payment of lawyers fees, disbursements as well as everyday expenses.
Whatever comes sooner, three years, or the payment of the equalization.
No, no payments are required until the end of the three-year term of the loan or the equalization payment to your client.
Our charges are transparent and straightforward. An administration fee is added to the loan and interest is accrued only on the money used and calculated at a fixed rate of interest. Call us for more details at 1-866-800-2100.
