I lended someone $4000 last year, this was written on paper with signatures. Later I lended him 1500 more without written agreement, but I used checks and noted as “personal loan”. Till now he has not paid me anything back, I hope I don’t have to, but if somehow I have to, how much would small claim court would let me ask back? The entire 5500 or only the 4000 with written agreement? Thank you for any advice! I need this money but not super urgent, I hope to use it for down payment of a car, my last one is almost dead. I’m from Alabama.
