Under US law any sort of a transfer of money or of property, if not expressly done under contract is considered to be a gift. That means that any money you sent him, unless he directly stated that it was a loan or money that he borrowed, and promised to pay back, is considered to have been given without expectation of return. In US courts you would have to provide evidence and have the burden of proving that the money you sent were indeed a loan and not a gift. By default without any evidence, if you go to court and claim that it was a loan and he claims it was a gift, since you as a pursuing party (called a 'plaintiff') have to prove your case, the evidence would be equal ob both sides and the judge would dismiss. As for his location or how to find him, the courts do not help you find someone. To file suit the obligation of knowing where to serve that person with a copy of the complaint (the forms you file with the court) is on you as the plaintiff. That means that you would need to try to track him down if you can, find his address, and if you choose to sue, serve him there. The information that you provided may help but the possible employers (if you choose to contact them), do not have to inform you if he does work there, or what his personal information may be. Perhaps you may want to use online search options to track him if you can. If you can find him, great--you could then possibly hire a local attorney to file on your behalf. Just please be aware that attorney fees may be fairly high--just for an appearance in court an attorney may charge you $750-$1,500 depending on that attorney's expertise.
Hope that helps. Udachi vam!
i found out the working address of this man. Is this possible to point this address in papers for the court?
That is indeed possible. You can formally serve him at work, provided he is there to accept service or someone on his behalf, such as his boss, is willing to sign off on the documentation.
