If you have a lawyer, have him draft a scare letter.
basically it is a letter from a lawyer on the aspect of them not paying.
it doesn't threaten lawsuit, but, well you get the picture.
this will sometimes scare them into paying
if it is over the small claims court amount you can take it farther,
but this might force them into bankruptcy and then you loose a bunch
you might try asking if they can pay small amounts monthly to pay it off
