He sill owes $8600.00 The promissory note is from State of New Mexico Corrections Dept. Probation& Parole the note is till the Note is paid in full.It also has a default list which he has violated. & it calls for Attorneys fees should I have to hire an attorney to collect or protect my rights to collect if he fails to comply.
Thanks for your answer very helpful. I wasn't sure what venue would be appropriate. Can I ask 2 more questions? Would I be able to add an additional amount to the debt to bring the amt. to the maximum $10,000.00 for punitive damages for pain & suffering? He is married so will the judgment be his or is that community debt, if they were to get divorced?
We (my wife & I) have had a number of bad experiences with the local magistrate judge would we be able to recuse him from the proceedings? How do you go about that? Is there some motion that you have to file?
