My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
You send a letter of demand and say that if is not paid in 14 days you will sue in QCAT.
Do not use a lawyer it will cost you more than the $500.00 owing.
You will be able to claim the filing fee you pay and the service costs.
You can use the messages she sent you as evidence.
If you chase it yourself it would be worth it. Not if you intend to use a lawyer.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance If there is nothing further
