Someone owes you money

 

Community Justice Centres provide experienced mediators free of charge, to help people in dispute reach and agreement. In many cases, particularly if your dispute is about $10,000 or less, mediation can be a better alternative to court.

Alternatively, you can try talking to the person that owes you money or sending a letter of demand. The information sheet below will provide more detail.
