Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good evening. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
You can file suit against them in small claims court. Small claims court is designed to be "user friendly" so that you can present a claim without an attorney. Also, it moves much more quickly than regular court. You can get the necessary forms to start from the clerk of the court.
Once you get a judgment you can attach and levy their property and garninsh their accounts and wages until the judgment is paid.
You just need to show that the money was given with the intent that it be repaid and that your friend and you both agreed to it.
So, if there is any thing in writing or email consistent with that then you would want to present that as proof.
Small claims court is a little more relaxed in terms of the evidence allowed and how it is presented.
