Apologies if Im in the wrong place but going crossed eyed looking at info!


I am currently on JSA (Contribution Based) after losing my job 6mths ago, so I would like to know if I can get Legal Aid for taking an ex friend to court?


I lent my "best friend" £490 to go on holiday with me nearly 5 years ago. She does not dispute that she owes me this sum and despite promising to pay me back, she still hasn't! She just keeps making excuses and is now ignoring me. I can prove that I paid for the holiday, and have got evidence that i have made repeated requests for payment. Due to my situation I could really do with her paying me back as I am now getting myself into debt and she does know my circumstances.


I have now typed up a letter to send to her as a final request for payment either in full or in installments before going to court. Is there a template anywhere that I should use instead? It is not threatening in anyway, it just states the facts and that i am willing to accept either payment in full or in 3 equal monthly installments and with dates and that i require a response within a month.


I also would like to know if I could get legal aid if I need to proceed to a small claims court? I have tried finding a legal aid solicitor but although The Law Society Website state that some do provide Legal Aid when I enquire they have all said no to civil cases! I have been to the local CAB but they couldn't really help me either!


I just need help! I have looked on loads of websites but Im just getting more and more confused!


Many thanks:~)
