I’m want to collect...

I’m want to collect on a dept. I loaned my stepson $6000 with an agreement that he would pay me back monthly. Going on 18 months and no money received. What do I do

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

My name isDale

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

I’ve asked him repeatedly. Nothing but excuses

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

There are other moneys owed. About $400 in cash advances. And 4 months of rent about $1600

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.

Take your time

Do you have anything in writing stating that he owes you this money?

Just want to know if there is a form at the court house I can fill out on my own. So I can try and recover some of the money I lost

You can absolutely sue your stepson in small claims court for the amount he owes you. What state are you in? I'm going to try to find you the forms.

I have a loan agreement. He signed, I signed and there is a witness signature as well. Stares what the money was to be used for with details of payments

My apologies... it looks like your question got routed to the US. I'm going to see if I can find you the forms anyway but if not I will opt out so that a canadian lawyer can look.

Thanks. Have a great day

It's my pleasure :) If you wouldn't mind, could you please take a moment to submit a rating so that I receive credit for working with you. If you have any follow up questions I would be *happy* to answer them. Experts only get credit for the time and effort we spend on our answers if you rate positively - 5 stars is definitely appreciated but not required! It DOES NOT cost you anything at all to submit a rating; it just allows me to get credit for helping you - otherwise I get no credit at all. You CAN still ask follow up questions after rating. There may be a lag between your question and my answer; this is because I'm either not at my computer or helping someone else but I assure you I will ALWAYS come back and answer your question.

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.

I loaned a "friend" over $4,000 over a year ago. All I have are text messages and emails to prove it. Right after that I learned he was not who he said he was. I felt bad for him. On 9/30/18 he agreed to pay me a minimum of$100 a month and $500 ASAP. Since then I received $100 after some more arguing. Is it worth it to take this to Special Civil. I see he has fed tax liens filed on 10/5/17. Not sure how that might effect any judgements I may win. And if I do win a judgement I understand it may not be able to be enforced … read more
