Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight. Yes it would be breach of contract suit filed in Union County ,NJ.The parties agreed that the matter would be heard here and consented to it.You can file suit there for the value of the amount owed to you under the contract and seek judgment for this amount including filing fees.You will have to serve the defendant here out of state.You may want to consider a NJ lawyer and add on lawyer fees and costs for the suit. But you are able to file this in NJ in Union City as per the contract. I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.I wish you best in the suit here.Thanks again.
