When reading through advice columns and websites for victims of domestic abuse, I have seen people recommend cash advances and payday loans to victims. Women abused by their husbands may have trouble trying to leave because they may not have enough of their own money. Some abusers may purposefully attempt to control their victim by limiting their access to the family’s money. A quick loan or cash advance can enable a victim to afford to leave the abusive home and find somewhere else to stay. For example, it could be put towards a bus ticket or cab ride to a hotel and then put towards staying in the hotel until other arrangements can be made.
USA Quick Payday offers a Faxless payday loan through its website. Anyone can apply, and can get a loan anywhere from $100 to $1500 after providing proof of employment and monthly income. They have no application fees and you can get your cash advance in the same day.
Payday loans can be a useful tool in an emergency, and domestic violence can be an emergency. However, be careful when using payday loans. You will have to pay the money back with high interest.
