First you should fill up the cheque and present it in bank for encashment. If it bounces then issue a lawyer's notice for recovery of money under 148 NI act, and file a case for his prosecution for cheque bonce if he does not honor the notice.

Simultaneously, file a case for recovery of amount advanced along with interest and the amount you incur on availing the services of your lawyer.
