Customer Question
I let someone barrow...

I let someone barrow money so he could keep his house. we signed an agreement. its been years have not seen a penny. have taken him to small claims. but because he owns his own business, mowing lawns there is no way for me to get my money back. seems like the honest people get the raw end. the laws are for the criminals. amount*****charges and the per cent they add on,amount now 55 6500. I have tried to give him ways to pay me back,working for me to get my yard done,etc. no response. now I don't know where he lives, still in the area but has moved

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Newton,north carolina

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Small claima twice. but the 2nd time i went to see if i could or had to go to court again they said it was good for ten years and didn't need to do anything. i asked if i could take it higher they said no. that was about years ago

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

They said that we could get him to sell whatever to pay me but it has to be worth a certain amount. he doesn't have anything that meets the amount. i think he knows what he needs to do to keep from paying. he owes other people money also

Was there a specific date for repayment?

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.

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.
