Have you though about mediation?

Mediation is an economical and effective way of resolving conflicts that involves an impartial mediator.
The latter intervenes with the parties to help them negotiate a fair and viable agreement that meets everyone’s needs and that is subject to free and informed consent from the parties.

The agreement reached can then be homologated by a judge and can be enforceable in the same way as a judgment rendered by the Court itself.
According to a survey conducted in 2016 by the firm Infras on behalf of the Ministry of Justice : 69% of respondents said they would not have the financial means to defend and assert their rights in Court

It is mainly lawyers’ fees (87%) that would prevent respondents from having the financial means to defend themselves in Court.

Retaining the services of a mediator can resolve more than 8 out of 10 conflicts quickly and effectively without having to pay thousands of dollars in legal fees. The parties involved separate the fees of the mediator between them.
