Alabama Divorce Loans: Good or Bad Idea?

Posted by Steven D. Eversole | Oct 03, 2007 | 0 Comments

Is it is good idea for financial institutions to offer loans to cover Alabama divorce costs?  Financial companies in Japan are offering loans to cover the cost of a divorce.  The loans are an attempt to help individuals restart their life after a divorce and enable everyone to afford the often high costs of divorce, and child custody litigation.  In my opinion this is a very good idea.  It seems I am contacted almost daily by someone in desperate need of quality divorce representation that cannot afford my services.  I try very hard to take pro bono cases as much as possible, I have reduced my fees in certain situations, I offer payments plans, fixed fees, and I take credit cards in order to give people access to quality Alabama Divorce and Family Law representation.  However, despite my efforts to make these services affordable, I am forced to turn away many who cannot afford my Alabama divorce and family law services on a regular basis.  I think American financial institutions should offer legal fee loans on other kinds of cases as well, not just for divorce and family law.  In my humble opinion, everyone, even those without substantial monetary means, should have the same access to quality Alabama divorce and family law legal services.
