Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for the information and your question. You can always try to file suit in small claims court in the County where you and she live. That would be the correct forum for suing for a debt owed. The problem you may have is proving that this payment was not a gift. In other words, you will need to convince the court that the agreement was that your former GF was going to pay you back and she didn't.
You can find out about the process and forms you will need by going to the following link: http://www.courts.ca.gov/selfhelp-smallclaims.htm
Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment and leave a positive rating in the box above, I will receive credit for assisting you. Thank you
I wanted to touch base with you and make sure that you did not have any follow up questions for me from the answer I provided to you on the 29th. For some unknown reason, the Experts are not always getting replies or ratings (at the top of the question/answer page you are viewing or in the pop up box for this question), which is how we get credit (paid) for our work, that the customer thinks have gone through. In your case I received neither. If you are having technical difficulties with reading, replying or rating, please let me know so that I can inform the Site administrator. Please note that Site use works best while using a computer and using either Google Chrome or Firefox.
In any event, it was a pleasure assisting you and I would be glad to attempt to assist you further on this issue, or a new legal issue, if needed. You can bookmark my page at: http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-marsha411jd/
