Hi folks, J.G. Wentworth here.
If you are like the rest of us, you probably don’t relish the idea of going to court. Driving to a courthouse, waiting in lines, dealing with lawyers, speaking to a judge… It can be pretty intimidating stuff, right?
Well if you are selling your structured settlement payments in exchange for cash now, depending on what state you live in, you may have to appear in front of a judge.
But wait, don’t panic! – Because there’s good news: J.G. Wentworth will help guide you through this process and make it as easy for you as possible.
And here’s even better news: it’s a process that’s designed to protect you.
Here’s how it works: before the legal contract for the sale of structured settlement payments is finalized, a judge will take a look at it to determine whether it is in the individual’s best interest to sell their structured settlement payments. But while using the court system does protect some people from unscrupulous practices and making poor financial decisions, it may also unfortunately add weeks to the process of selling your structured settlement payments.
The good news here is that J.G. Wentworth – apart from being one of the most respected businesses in the industry, with a high rate of court approvals – will manage the court process for you. We will explain how the filing works, whether you need to be present in court on the date your case is being discussed (this varies state to state), and how long this part of the process should take. We have attorneys representing us in every state in the country. Their goal, and ours, is the same: to get your money to you as soon as we legally can.
So when you hear us talk about court filings, legal documents, and attorneys – please, don’t panic! Our J.G. Wentworth team will work hard to make this as painless for you as possible and get you your cash sooner.
