Good day! I'm not sure if this is the right sub-forum but here it goes anyway.
So the situation is that my mother is being asked to pay for a check she issued way back from 2009 but she already paid in cash instead and forgot to get the check back.
The condominium is already titled and they are asking for proof of payment but my mother can't find the receipt.
They are threatening to bring it to court and I'm wondering if we can have a good case here because they wouldn't have allowed payments to continue if we didn't pay for the first one.
We don't really have any experience on getting legal advice and my mother is kinda untrusting of lawyers because of fears of being ripped off.
Thanks, and advice on how we could go on about the situation and some basic details on how getting legal advice works (finding one, billing, etc.) would be lovely.
