Here are the top 10 most frequently asked questions about legal funding, but if you have others, please contact us. We'd be happy to help in any way we can.

How do I apply?
Simply complete the application on this website, or call us and we can complete the application with you over the phone. It only takes about a minute.

Is there an application fee?
There is no application fee. It costs you nothing to apply to see if you qualify for a lawsuit cash advance.

How much money can I get from my case?
That depends on the total value of your legal claim. On average Signal will fund 10% to 15% of your case value. After your first funding, you may qualify for more money later on depending on your specific case.

How fast can I get the money?
On average you can get the money in about 24 hours, depending on how fast we can talk to your attorney and receive the signed agreement.

How much does it cost?
The cost for a legal funding depends on how long it takes to settle your case. While we don't publish our pricing for competitive reasons, we'd be happy to explain it over the phone.

How do I pay Signal Funding back?
When your case settles, your attorney will pay us back out of the money you get from your settlement award. This is not like a loan where you have to make monthly payments – there are no monthly payments. It is no-risk, so if you lose your case, you owe us nothing and get to keep the money you already got.

Do you tell anyone else I took out a cash advance?
No. Only you and your attorney will know.

Do I need good credit to get funding?
No. Your credit rating (credit score) doesn't matter.

Do you do a background check?
No.

Is this a loan?
No. The transaction is considered a purchase of a part of your expected settlement award.
