Your question is common among small businesses. Here's a few tips on how to take care of this matter yourself.
1. Make a photocopy of the first check you ever receive from a customer or if the customer's bank account changes, make a copy of subsequent checks, so you have their bank account number and bank.
2. In general, in California, if the amount in controversy is under $5000, a business may bring suit in small claims court of the County in which the business arrangement was made or executed (need to check jurisdiction with the small claims court). Individuals may bring suit for amounts up to $7500. Small Claims courts do not allow attorneys unless they are the defendant you are suing. Follow the rules given by the small claims court regarding service of the suit, etc. (follow the rules carefully or the case may get kicked and you have to start over again; they may even have a service to serve the lawsuit).
3. Prepare a simple business letter to the court, describing the facts and how you've been wronged and the precise dollar amount you've been damaged. List and attach any documentary evidence you have (proof of delivery, invoice, contract etc.) Include proof that the lawsuit was served, just in case the defendant fails to appear.
4. On the day of the small claims hearing, show up and hand in your letter brief and say you are there to answer any questions. The small claims court will rule then or send you a ruling by mail.
5. Once you have the ruling in your favor, contact the small claims court clerk and indicate you would like help to collect the judgment. The court should have a program for collection of small claims judgments. Fill out the appropriate forms, pay the clerk's fee, and give them the bank account number of the defendant that owes the judgment. The clerk will work with the sheriff to contact the bank and seize the money by court order. Once the clerk has the money, follow the rules to get it.
ALWAYS CHECK THE LOCAL SMALL CLAIMS COURT RULES.
- Include a mandatory binding arbitration clause in your agreement or terms and conditions for doing business with a customer.
- Also include interest charges for the maximum amount allowed by law for late payments, so that if you do have to go after a customer, you can get more money to cover some of the time and cost.
CONSULT A BUSINESS/CORPORATE ATTORNEY REGARDING CREATION OF THE PROPER CUSTOMER AGREEMENTS OR IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THE ABOVE GENERAL ADVICE.
I Have Insurance, But Should I Get An Attorney If I Was At Fault In An Accident And Two People Were Injured?
I Got A Ticket In An Accident. I Hit A Car Which Ran Into A Sanitation Vehicle. I Have Insurance, But I Am Scared That The Bodily Liability Will Run Out And These People Will Try To Get Further Restitution By Suing Me. I Am A Single School Teacher With No Assets. Will I End Up Paying These People For The Rest Of My Life? I Barely Make It As It Is.
You insurance will cover you and DEFEND you up to your policy limit. I am a bodily injury examiner and I can tell you that our job is to try to resolve your claim within your policy limit. You ALWAYS have the right to hire an attorney at your own expense to protect any assets you have outside of your policy limit. There are though several things you can do to protect yourself. Talk to you adjuster about completing an affidavit of no other insurance. This will let the injured party and/or their attorney know that you have no other applicable insurance coverage and that you weren't in the course or scope of your business. If the injured party is represented the attorney may ask you to complete a different affidavit that will ask questions regarding your savings and assets. As you stated, you don't have any; and don't worry, most people are in the same boat as you. Often times once an asset check is completed and it is determined that all you have are you policy limits most claims will settle within the limits of your policy. The other thing to keep in mind is you can always contribute out of pocket above your policy limit. This show of good faith, even if it only $100, sometimes is enough to get the claim settled. You adjuster can also provide you with details about the injuries being claimed. Are they soft tissue injuries or something more serious like a scar or fracture? Your adjuster is knowledgeable and should be able to help answer you questions about the status of your claim. And now that you have been experienced in a loss such as this which may exceed the value of your policy, consider increasing your limits. Remember, you have to protect yourself from the unknown.

Advice On Divorce... My Husband Left 4 Months Ago. I Applied For Child Assistance Through The State... My Husband Has Been S Major Jerk And Particularly Hates The Idea Of Going Through The Courthouse. And Has Threatened Me So That I Won'T Do It That Way... If I Go Through With It My Unemployed Husband Will Be Ordered To Pay $375. For 2 Kids For Three Years. If I Wait Until Feb. I Can Put 2 K Towards An Attorney And Might Be Able To Be &Quot;Awarded&Quot; Twice That Much. Which Would You Choose And Why? Thanks..
If you are getting assistance, the state will go after your ex-husband for the awarded amount, which then goes to the state. Call a Legal Aid office and see if you can get representation for a divorce case. They or someone should be able to help you. Good luck.

What Is Needed To Become A Very Good Lawyer?
Well my dad is a very good lawyer, and I know he's a really....really deep thinker. Like he thinks everything out before he has a case, he'll be like, well if I say this, what might the prosecutor say...and he always thinks of a back up, and how to get out of a bad situation if he needs to. Like he has a little notebook where he writes out what he's going to say for an opening statement, and he writes, okay, the prosecutor might come back using....and he writes down several things the prosecutor might try to use to counter him, and it's so fun to watch my dad in court, because you can always tell that he thought the case out, because it looks like he always knows what he is going to say before the prosecutor or the judge even finishes there sentence, when most lawyers would have to think for a second, and they wouldn't have nearly as good as a comeback.
Divorce Decrees And Dependents?
Every Other Year I Get My Daughter As A Dependent On My Tax Return. It Is Stated That Way In The Divorce Decree.(This Year Was To Be My Year.) For The Past Year My Daughter Has Lived With Her Dad. He Claimed Her On His Taxes This Year And Told Me It Was Because I Paid No Support. I Am Not Ordered To Pay Support. We Have Joint Legal And Physical Custody. Can I Fight This? And How Do I Begin? My Daughter Lived Solely With Me From The Age Of 4 Thru 14, Then Moved To Her Dads Because She Did Not Want To Change Schools When I Moved To A New Job. Any Help Will Be Appreciated.
thats one of those things you need to consider.Your daughter made the decision to move to her dads not thinking thru the divorce decree.If the child has lived and been supported by your ex husband the entire year, bought her clothes, fed her, and took care of the school issues, you really need to let him file the deduction.After all, what did you put into it other than a few meals when she visited,and maybe an icecream or 2????
You could legaly be a horses *** and file anyway,and show the decree, but by the time you get the decree redone to show who pays what, your going to come out cheaper and more peace in the family by simply allowing him to file.If it were the other way around, wouldn't YOU want it that way????
