The New York TimesCan you afford to sue your ex for your share of the property in your divorce? 

There is an article in the The New York Times  about a new business in Hollywood that will finance your divorce in exchange for a piece of the settlement. It is intended for people with substantial assets but poor cash flow. This enables the cash-poor person to pursue their fair share of the property. 

I was at first shocked by this by why not? I don’t think it will cause frivolous law suits.
