Alternatives to court action

Depending on the circumstances, it might not be appropriate to take your case to court. However, that doesn't mean that your problem will go away and you might still need a helping hand to sort it out. This section explains some of the options.

If you can't find something to help you in this section (or if you're still not sure where to turn) you might need specialist one-to-one advice from an adviser. Have a look at our Advice Services Directory to find a suitable agency near you.
