Tree roots uplifting neighbor's driveway

My tree is next to my nieghbor's drieway. She claims the roots are causing problems on her sewer line and uplifting the asphalt. There is damage to the aphalt, but we live in the hills and there are other trees near the driveway. Who is responsible for the cost of repair to the asphalt and root pruning? She would like me to cut down the tree but I don't want to because of the aesthetics and shade it offers.
