I would like to know my options please . Thanks j
Hello and welcome! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you. You can introduce those text messages to establish and support the terms of your agreement. It sounds like your only option at this point would be to file suit, if he will not discuss these issues with you. If there were no other written terms other than those via text, the parties would each testify as to the remaining terms of the agreement. The law might further consider you partners, in which case any other terms of your relationship would be governed by Florida partnership laws.

hi david thanks for the quick reply what kind of council should i get i also don't have any money to pay them up front what should i do .you can call me at XXXXXXXXXX thanks john call anytime
Hi John. Thanks for the follow up reply. We are unable to directly contact customers on this site. You would want to hire a litigation attorney, preferably with experience in business law. I will say that it may be difficult to hire an attorney without a retainer. Partnership disputes can turn into time-consuming litigation with the potential to expend substantial legal fees in the process.
