I am going to sue someone who owes me $1400 in small claims court. this person has signed an agreement saying he will pay for all my attorney fees, collection fees, and any other costs resulting from my collection efforts. I have not hired an attorney or collection agency because its not necessary, I know how to fill out the small claims papers. I am wondering if there is any other costs that I could add to this $1400. Maybe hire a family member to do something and pay them? Is there any costs that I could "incur" and add on to the amount I am suing for? I was going to ask this in a legal forum but the people there are too uptight and they will not answer such questions.
