Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If he has not paid you back when he said he would, your recourse here is to file a small claims court action against him for breach of contract and sue him for your money back. You don't need an attorney and the small claims court clerk will have the forms you need to file to sue him.
You will need to file suit in the county where he lives so the sheriff can serve him and force him to come to court.
Once you get a judgment, if he doesn't pay you, you can have the clerk issue an order to garnish his wages up to 25% until you are repaid.
