Iceberg provides access to justice

Atherton Godfrey has teamed up with Iceberg Client Credit to be able to offer access to an innovative financial product that finances the cost of divorce legal fees and disbursements for up to 36 months, giving them the breathing space they need to resolve their financial affairs.
Iceberg is part of the Wesleyan Assurance Society and is the only finance provider recommended by Resolution, formerly known as the Solicitors Family Law Association.
Sharon McKie, specialist divorce solicitor at the firm, said: “Iceberg Client Credit involves a simple and straightforward application process with low monthly payments. There are no application fees or set up costs and no early repayment penalties.
“It will not be suitable for everyone but it could be the ideal solution for those who are struggling to access legal advice because funds are tied up in the matrimonial home or investments.”
iceberg provides an unsecured loan at preferential rates. However, the lending criteria takes into account the assets to be shared and affordability to avoid the danger of taking out finance that cannot be repaid.
Sharon added: “Unfortunately, we can’t find a single solution that would suit everyone, but we are working hard to make available a range of options that could help ease the stress at this already difficult time.
“We also have fixed fees and payment plans available and early in the New Year we will be introducing our DIY divorce solution.”
