Customer Question
A canadian citizen owes...

A canadian citizen owes me $200k USD, he is not willing to pay me back the money. I will need to sue him to claim the back payment. Can you help?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

It is in Ontario

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not yet, the due date for the payment is Dec 31st, 2017. He did not make the payment, and it is past due

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am a US citizen I have a signed IOU that the person I loan money to.
