Customer Question
I have an ex...

I have an ex boyfriend who owes me money for a computer I bought and paid for under my name. We had an agreement that he would make the payments an he failed. The total is 1100.00 He also owes me 280.00 for a plane ticket which was non refundable and he did not use the ticket and agreed to pay me back.

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

I am in New Mexico..He now lives in California

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

I have emailed him and asked for payment and offered a payment plan to resolve the issue

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

No its been over 2 years

Sorry. This is on the Canada law list but I can see it is about the law in the US.

I will ask the site to move the post.

Thanks

At this point, I would file suit in your local small claims court to recover this.

He lives in California..would that still work?
Lawyer: Asad Rahman, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

You could file where you live and then seek to enforce in California or file in California directly but then you would have to fly there at least once for the meeting with the judge.

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.

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.
