Definitely! Instead of settling the issue in court, you could employ either mediation or arbitration.
Mediation is the process whereby both parties settle their disputes via a process of discussion. The mediator will try to help both parties understand where each of them stand on the issue and try to narrow their differences. A dispute can be resolved if only both sides agree to compromise. A mutually beneficial agreement could be reached with both parties agreeable with the outcome.
Arbitration is similar to court proceedings just that it is not taken in a court room and the verdict is not issued by a judge. An arbitrator will look into the legal rights and wrongs of a dispute and makes a decision based on the facts presented. The decision made by an arbitrator is legally binding whether both parties agree to it or not.
The cost of a lawsuit depends on how long it lasts. The cost of lawyers often differs from different firms. However there are certain fixed costs, such as the application for a Writ of Summons and court hearing fees.
