Collecting Unpaid Rent From Former Tenant

What legal means in Ohio are available to me to collect unpaid rent from a former tenant?  I didn't evict him but we agreed that my apartment was no longer the right place for him because he can't afford it, so he will be moving out this week.  I tried to work with him last year to help him get back on track, but now a large sum of money is owed (nearly $2k).  He is retired military and collects social security.  He says he wants to pay me in full over time, but I would like to give this situation some legal standing, not just empty promises where I'm left holding the bag.

start with the proper notices, perhaps pay or quits. If they do not meet the date of payment, they have to vacate.
