Thank you for your response. Yes I am sure that I want German law as the individuals that I lent it to are German and I currently work in Germany.
I do not have any documents that I lent them the money but I do have their acknowledment that I lent them the money and that they were to repay me in facebook conversations and text messages. Would that assist me ??
Additionally, I have friends that can attest that they owe me money.
Thank you so much for the assistance. This was indeed helpful. One last question. Do I need to send then the demand for payment letter prior to executing these options.
I understand the confusion about the US bit. I am from the US but work for the US govt in Germany at the moment.
Thank you. I will send the letter in the post today.
Thank you again for all of your assistance with this matter. It has been a great help.
