What type of evidence or paperwork do I need to show claims

Customer Question

What type of evidence or paperwork do I need to show for small claims court? A former friend borrowed $3000 from me more than 4 years ago and has yet to pay it back. Unfortunately there was no formal agreement and all I have to prove she owes me this money
is the cheques I wrote and text messages back and forth between us

What province is this please?

When is the last time that she acknowledged in writing that she owes me the money?

When is the last time that she made a partial payment towards debt?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ontario. She acknowledged the debt about a month ago and the last payment was about the same time
Expert:  Legal Ease replied 1 year ago.

Phew. I was concerned that you could not sue because of the limitation period.

There is not always paperwork to prove one's case and the court knows that. No one, aside from a lawyer, anticipates having to go to court, ahead of time.

But you the cheques, the text messages and your live testimony will be more than enough.

Does that help?
