How do I get a former employer to pay off my last severance without seeking legal advise?
I was laid off my job last year, given 6 months worth of severance (in monthly checks) and when the last check was sent, I did not cash it because the amount was incorrect (it was for the full month of May, and should have been only for 10 days). I informed payroll, and they say they sent a new check, but I never received it (I was in the middle of a move). After informiing payroll this April, and sending the person their a letter with correct addresses and dates, I have yet to receive another check. Today, I forwarded that letter in an E-mail, copying my old supervisor. I now live in Germany, cannot afford legal advise-what should I do now?

Call or email the Department of labor in the state you came from and inform the employer that you are doing so if you do not recieve the correct check in so many days. I am sure they will find a way to get your correct check to you.

Call your state's Labor Board. These are the people who control employers, and their shenanigans! Look up your state's Labor Board in a search engine. It will give you contact info, and BONUS! may give you an email address so you may not have to call. Good luck, and auf Wiedersehen!
