Question

Country: United States of America
State: Virginia

A friend of mine borrowed $400.00 from me in October. She wrote a receipt for it stating that she would make payments on Oct. 30, Nov 3 and Nov 9-10. She has not made one payment to repay her debt to me. Is there anything I can to legally to get my money back from her?

Answer

Based on what you say here, you could probably file suit against her (or at least threaten to do so) in small claims court or in regular court; filing in small claims court is easier and requires no attorney...you could try to collect all of the costs and damages that you suffered due to her behavior...
