My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Delaware
Ok alittle background. I was engage to a man for about 4 years. During this time I paid everything, including for him and my five children at the time. We had a child together however the relationship didn't last. He tol me thru out entire relationship that he would give me all my money if it didn't work out. I paid off his house,car, etc. When we separated the amount totaled about 189,000.00. Me just wanting out of the relationship I settled for 40,000.00. He was Gonna get a loan for full amount however I felt bad and said no just pay me back 10,000 over the next four years with a notorized contract. We both went to bank with typed letter stating full amount owed and when to be paid which was yearly at 10000.00 Has both names clearly typed and signed as well as a notary. Next payment is due the end of this month and now refuses to pay. He says his lawyers are telling him it's not binding nor will it hold up in court. Also with his first payment of 10000.00 he wrote in the memo part." money I owe"
Ok first question is will this hold up in court? What are my chances of getting this money back??? I'm single with six kids and in desperate need of this money. He has many lawyers, should I get one and if so who does pro Bono. He took me for everything, no I don't care as I take care of my own however I am looking forward to get this money as it only right. Any thought on how I should go about this it would be much apprieciated. Thank you for your time
