Former friend owes me $2500 in loans. No official contract,

Former friend owes me $2500 in loans. No official contract, I didn't ask for interest. I have a few hundred messages with them about this loan saved. I do not have all the receipts for the loans, but I do have them acknowledging what is owed in the saved messages. We had an agreement and they haven't paid up on it (explained out in the saved messages). We are both in the military, so I at least know they have a steady paycheck that comes in at the same time as mine.What legal advice should I seek?Do I have a case for small claims court? If I do, I plan on asking for $4000, to cover court fees and grievances.How do I go about getting reimbursed what is owed to me?

I Am not sure what area of law my question pertains to. It

I Am not sure what area of law my question pertains to. It is a family related money matter. I need an answer from an attorney licensed in NY state. My jurisdiction is Suffolk County. My husbands former spouse borrowed $110,000.00 from his mother and signed a promissory note to pay her back when the marital residence was sold. She was one half owner at the time. This loan violated the stipulation of settlement of divorce which prohibited either party from using the house as collateral. She subsequently signed the house over to my husband in exchange for his paying roughly $50,000 in secured judgments against her. After payment of her secured judgments, half the mortgage, real estate and legal fees etc. there would have been no more than 35-40 thousand left in her half of the equity. We wanted to sell the house and give his mother whatever equity she had left but my mother in law wanted to continue to stay. We agreed to keep the house for three years (until my husbands daughter graduated) and let his mother remain in exchange for that equity. That was a verbal agreement. His mother filed a satisfaction for the $110,000 with the state and she continued to live in the house with not contributions for three more years. Does she have legal standing to try to recover any of the money in the promissory note if I sell the house. The house became mine after my husbands death as a tenant by the entirety. We were both on the deed.
