Funding Your Freedom

Funding Your Freedom

How’s this for a concept? New Chapter Capital offers “divorce financing assistance.” This company provides funds to people caught up in divorce proceedings across the nation. Included in its funding aid, New Chapter will fund your legal fees, as well as your reasonable living expenses during your divorce process.

How does it do this? By advancing you a portion of the money you expect to receive in your divorce.

New Chapter (and isn’t that a great name?) is, of course, the brainchild of a former family lawyer, Nicole Noonan. It’s no surprise that Nicole is a nationally recognized divorce expert. Crowned the “Fairy Godmother of Divorce” by New York Post’s Julia Marsh, Nicole is a frequent featured speaker on Bloomberg’s “Talking Stock with Pimm Fox.” She has been featured on Good Morning America, Bloomberg TV, and WLNY’s “The Couch.”

You might be asking, “So what?!” Well, for starters, you should know that many folks don’t control their own money or other assets; their spouses do. Even (or is that especially?) during their divorce. Add to that that just getting in front of a judge to ask for temporary support is an arduous and time-consuming process, with no guarantee at the end of it. So New Chapter enables you to engage qualified attorneys and experts, even just to get your case started.

Unlike banks and other finance companies, New Chapter assesses your eligibility based exclusively on the settlement you can expect from your divorce proceedings. Moreover, you are not required to demonstrate your ability to make monthly repayments. Why? because, no repayments are required until your case settles.

All in all, New Chapter helps level the playing field for the needy or non-monied (in Florida, we call him the “impecunious”) spouse.

Divorce is stressful. The legal process can be time consuming, frustrating, and at times expensive. Financial disparity between spouses can put the non-earning spouse at a distinct disadvantage, especially in the courtroom.

If you are the “impecunious spouse,” New Chapter can help you.
