I actually had to file a claim last year to get a refund on a returned saddle.....long story. But anyway, they were in another state, and I had to deal with the county where THEY were, not where I was. I would find out what county they are in and call the clerk of courts there. I had everything all ready to file and sent the folks a registered letter (return receipt as proof they got it), that basically gave them 30 days to pay, and after that I would file. In my case, it worked-they paid-right at the date. I got my $$, and saved the $150 in fees. Keep in mind I kept everything ready to file until I had the check in the bank for about 30 days just to be sure.
Just do not let it go-I would suggest you get going on it, as there is a statute of limitations.......

Sorry, I meant if you won in court and she doesn't pay. That's when you can get a judgement for liens on property.

Attorney and court costs are going to be more than what you are owed. I would just write it off and go on about your business.

It isn't for small claims, and as I said, in my case, the letter worked. You could even get one from an attorney, that may hold more weight. Doesn't cost much for a letter.

Yes, What frankknbeans said, sometimes a just the Demand letter is enough to scare them into paying. I would start with that. They are easy to draft up, you can usually find exampled on the internet.

Your best bet is to call the local court house. It may very well be worth your while to take it to small claims. An attorney isn't needed. If you win, she will have to pay your costs, if you apply for them. The court may require a filing fee. In Ontario it used to be $50.
