Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear this.
There is no likelihood of being able to get this person charged. This is considered to be a civil matter.
So what you can do is send this person a letter by Registered Mail. In the letter set out the facts, including the fact there was an agreement for them to pay these costs and then give them a deadline for paying you in full.Tell them if they fail to comply you will commence legal proceedings and then will be seeking interest and you costs.
You can then sue them in Small Claims Court and can self-represent. If it gets that far and you find you need some help as you go through the process you can always post on this site again and I can assist you further.
Does that help as a starting point?
Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
