"ever take someone to small claims court?"


  

          

did some work, they wont pay.

gotten every excuse in the book.

"emails/invoices went to junkmail and were never seen" lie! shout to sidekick by hubspot. i can see when they read my emails.

"check was sent out, checking with my accountant to see if it was cashed"

another 2 weeks go by then

"check went to the wrong zip, sending out another on weekly check run". yah bitch you got a weekly check run....

she just kept stalling.

anyway..never received a check, kept resending invoices. stayed amicable for months and now i'm just fed up.

gonna take her to court.

anyone have any experience? what can i expect?

because actually going to small claims court is a pain in the ass. and know just because you go, and even if you win doesn't mean you're walking out with a check.

thats what i'm hoping.

had a lawyer friend send a demand letter over, got a call from her saying "another" check has gone out. we'll see.

this has been a frustrating experience. its becoming less about the money now, i just don't want her getting away with this.

Same scenario. I did some work for a client who took the work, and basically told me to f*ck off. He added that he was going to change a few details to make the work "his". It was a really stressful situation.

I took him to small claims court and it was settled with a mediator. Long story short, he paid and was told that the funds would be seized if he didn't pay by a certain date.

There is a small fee to file at the small claim's court. Go ahead and use the system, it works if you have a strong case and it will absolve you from the stress and frustration you are feeling.
