By talking about hard cases, it doesn’t mean going to court. Sometimes if someone is chasing you for money, and you should pay it, the last thing you want is to appear in front of a judge. Once a judge decides, the other side might be able to sell your property to pay the money you owe.
The best family lawyers also try to keep things out of court to save their clients money. However, sometimes this is not always possible. If the other side is refusing to be reasonable, you might need to book a trial date. Less than 3% of family law disputes go to trial. The average Canadian simply cannot afford it.

You might want to reach an agreement with them. Although each household is unique, there are a lot of possible agreements that could be established. As a popular saying goes: not all your fingers are the same.
