A payday loan is a type of short-term option to borrow where a lender will extend high-interest credit based on your income. Its principal is typically a portion of your next paycheck. Payday loans charge high interest rates for short-term immediate credit. They are also called “cash advance” loans or “check advance” loans.
This category covers how a person might sue or be sued for a small amount of money. These are called small claim actions, in which the lawsuit covers a small amount of money (usually around $5000 or $10,000 or less), and goes to a special court. It might be for money that one person thinks the other owes them, from a contract, security deposit, accident damages, deceptive business practice, bad check, or land trespass.
