Ask a Business Lawyer. Get Business Law Questions Answered ASAP.
You have a signed, notarized joint venture contract. You either get paid what you are owed under the contract, or you sue the other joint venturers for the money. Am I missing something? Make a written demand with an accounting of what you are owed. Either they pay or you hire a lawyer and sue them.
I hope that I have been able to answer your question(s) in a helpful way. If you do not understand my answer or need to follow up please do so. My answer is based solely on the facts that you presented, if you add facts to the situation the answer may change. I do not get paid from the website unless you, the customer, accept the answer I have given you by clicking on the ACCEPT link. Sometimes, the answer I give you may not be what you wanted to hear. I can't tell you what you want to hear, I can only tell you what the law is and what I think will happen in your matter based on my 23 years of legal experience. Please don't "kill the messenger" or fail to ACCEPT my answer just because it is not what you were hoping to hear. Sometimes, I can only offer the advice that you sit down and confer with a local attorney where you live. If this is the advice I gave you, it is because based on the facts you gave me, the situation is, in my opinion, beyond the ability of a website to help you. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
