How much is owed?
The dollar amount is relevant because your reply makes "small claims court" NOT an option.
Because of the large amount involved, you should consult with a local attorney, present your contract, copies of invoices and follow up notices, and plan to file a breach of contract lawsuit.
Good luck and best wishes. I hope that you find this information to be helpful!
Where can I find more information regarding the process.
I want to be more educated before I speak to an attorney.
Which law should I read, or is there a "credit law for dummys" type of thing?
This isn't a credit law issue, per se. The facts you describe suggest it's straight forward breach of contract. That requires a showing a contract between the parties, showing that one party performed, showing that the other party did not perform (breach), and a showing a damages (e.g., you lost product and haven't been paid).
What the attorney is going to be interested in is your paper trail to meet those elements.
