Customer Question
I loaned money 7,000...

I loaned money 7,000 dollars to my sisters ex-fiance, they were still friends and on very good terms. He is an architect. Business was not good and he owed rent, he would have been homeless.Its been a little over 2 years and he has made no payment to me and keeps telling me in a couple more months he can make a payment to me.No payment has been made to me. I have his bank account number and I know i can get the bank to give me info on exactly when I transferred money to his account. Do i have any recourse in this situation.

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

I am in S.C. and he lives inN.J.

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

Like what

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

He presently has work on a consistent basis,but will not even make a payment of any k ind to me.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I'm an attorney. Please note this site is for general information for educational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice. Communicating with an expert on this site does not establish an attorney-client relationship. You might be offered a phone call, but you are under no obligation to accept; the phone call requests don’t come from me - they’re offered by the site - but if you do want a phone call I’d be happy to do that as well.

You could not proceed via "self help"... if he won't pay you back you'd need to sue him for the money.

Your remedies are to sue him for unpaid loan. This complaint can be filed in magistrate court which has a cheaper filing fee and quicker court date. You can file the complaint in the state the loan terms were agreed upon or the state where defendant lives. You can get a judgment & judgment lien against property that he owns in the state where the complaint was filed.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
