We are going to give you a breakdown of what Pre-settlement funding is. Pre-settlement funding a phrase that many people don't understand. Many people believe that this is a loan, although it is not. These Funding firms provide you with an advance to lawsuit plaintiffs who wouldn't normally get money before they settle. It buys you time in order to go through your lawsuit without settling pre-maturely.

This is also often times referred to as lawsuit funding, but they aren't a "loan". The benefits are that there isn't credit check, neither will there be any collateral. You get your cash advance against the lawsuit settlement amount you expect to receive for your claim. When you win your lawsuit, you pay the settlement funding company back an amount that is predetermined. Often times you aren't involved and they take care of that for you. In the event that you lose, there is no recourse involved. There is no repayment.

Pre-settlement funding is an option that plaintiffs in personal injury lawsuits use to help them avoid financial stress while waiting for their case to settle. Often, victims end up settling with their insurance companies, which usually ends up leaving the plaintiff with a lesser amount than they filed suit for. By obtaining a lawsuit loan, you can pay household bills, medical fees and other costs and avoid getting further in debt.

So, how do you get started? Discuss the benefits of contacting a litigation funding company with your lawyer. He can then contact the company, and send them the documents and other information about your claim. Once this information is in the hands of the funding company, they will review it and make a decision the same day. If you qualify, you will receive your lawsuit loan the next day.

Most cases involving pre-settlement funding are personal injury cases. When you have been injured because of someone else's carelessness, you may not be able to work. This means you have lost wages and medical costs that were caused by the accident. You deserve the right to file a claim for the costs incurred because someone else was being negligent. Litigation funding companies offer you the chance to get the money you need to live comfortably and pay all of your obligations while seeking compensation.

Remember, lawsuit loans are an option when you need money for the duration of your case. There are no monthly repayments, and if you lose you owe absolutely nothing. If pre-settlement funding sounds like an option that will benefit you, contact your attorney to discuss the matter. This could be exactly what you need to get full compensation for your injuries and other expenses resulting from someone else's negligence.

Green Card Lottery

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE US GREEN CARD LOTTERY


1. WHY DO NATIVES OF CERTAIN COUNTRIES NOT QUALIFY FOR THE GREEN CARD LOTTERY PROGRAM?

Diversity Green Card Lottery Visas are intended to provide an immigration opportunity for persons from countries other than the countries which send large numbers of immigrants to the U.S. The law states that no diversity visas shall be provided for natives of "high admission" countries. The law defines this to mean countries from which a total of 50,000 persons in the Family-Sponsored and Employment-Based visa categories immigrated to the United States during the previous five years.

2. WHAT IS THE NUMERICAL LIMIT FOR GREENCARD LOTTERY DV-2005?

By law, the U.S. diversity immigration program makes available a maximum of 55,000 permanent residence visas each year to eligible persons. However, the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA) passed by Congress in November 1997 stipulates that beginning as early as DV-99, and for as long as necessary, 5,000 of the 55,000 annually-allocated diversity visas will be made available for use under the NACARA program.

3 . WHAT ARE THE REGIONAL DIVERSITY VISA (GREEN CARD LOTTERY) LIMITS FOR DV-2005?

The Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS) determines the DV regional limits for each year according to a formula specified in Section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

4. WHEN WILL ENTRIES FOR THE DV-2005 GREEN CARD LOTTERY PROGRAM BE ACCEPTED?

The DV-2005 green card lottery entry period will begin on Saturday, November 1, 2003 and will last for 60 days through Tuesday, December 30, 2003. Each year millions apply for the program during the registration period.

5. MAY PERSONS WHO ARE IN THE U.S. APPLY FOR THE GREEN CARD PROGRAM?

Yes, an applicant may be in the U.S. or in another country, and the entry may be submitted from the U.S. or from abroad.

6. IS EACH APPLICANT LIMITED TO ONLY ONE ENTRY DURING THE ANNUAL GREEN CARD LOTTERY REGISTRATION PERIOD?

Yes, the law allows only one entry by or for each person during each registration period; applicants for whom more than one entry is submitted will be disqualified. The Department of State will employ sophisticated technology and other means to identify individuals that submit multiple entries during the registration period.
