The Legal Aid Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act whilst dramatically cutting the availability of legal aid to family law cases does offer one good thing for those seeking legal advice as it introduces the possibility of interim lump sum payments.

Lawyers may also offer what is known as a Sears Tooth agreement, a deed that assigns the client's settlement to the solicitor to allow them to cover their costs in full before the money reaches the client.  Read more here

Your bank may be willing to give you a loan and let you roll up the interest and repay it out of the settlement.  It is always worth making enquiries.
