I lent $40,000 to my son ( personal loan) almost 7 years ago and he never makes any attempt to pay. My relationship with him is now non-existent, making recovering my money harder if not impossible. I got a lawyer to write a letter of demand stating that he has 7 days to reply this letter or the case will go to Court. He didn't reply. I am finding hard to take the case to Court, specially if I have to be present. Also, I don't have the money to pay the Court and the new letter writing by my lawyer. I am a low income earner. Am I entitled to Legal Aid QLD? Is 7 years too late to recover a debt? Thank you in advance.
