You should first make a written demand for payment and if that doesn't provide results you should bring a legal action for collection.? Your demand letter should include a notice that should you bring legal action the debtor is liable for court costs and, depending upon any contract you may have providing for recovery of legal fees, attorney fees. You need to see an attorney for more information on filing a lawsuit.
