Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
In order for you to take any legal action against him, which would be to sue him in small claims court, you would have to find out where he lives or where he works because you have to be able to serve him with the suit and summons to get him into court.
Legally, that is the only thing you can do to get him to pay if he is not paying you voluntarily. Thus, you need to find out somehow where he lives or works so you and your friend can both sue him to recover the money. DCYF will not release that information to you I am afraid, so you will have to do some digging through friends and acquaintances.
I truly aim to please you as a customer, but please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me. Please consider that I am answering the question or question that is posed in your posting based upon my reading of your post and sometimes misunderstandings can occur. If I did not answer the question you thought you were asking, please respond with the specific question you wanted answered.
