Hi Brian, I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. You can file a lawsuit in the state where the company is located, asking a judge to order them to pay you the money you're owed. Look at your contract to see if it says, when there's a dispute
, the prevailing party is entitled to attorney's fees. If it does, they may have to reimburse you if you decide to hire a lawyer (and when you're talking about that much money, it's a good idea to have one). And having a US lawyer may help you reduce trips to the US during the course of the lawsuit. Once you have a judgment, you can put a lien on assets. Things like real estate, equipment, and motor vehicles can be sold to pay what they owe you. Money can be swept from their bank accounts. A lawyer can help you do that, too. If you prefer to avoid court, you can try sending a demand letter, via certified or registered mail, giving them one last opportunity to pay you before going to court. Usually, a demand letter contains a firm deadline for action, so if they don't reply, you know you can go ahead and prepare your lawsuit. If you have any questions or concerns about my response, please reply WITHOUT RATING. It's important that you are 100% satisfied with my courtesy and professionalism. Otherwise, please rate my service positively so I am paid for the time I spend answering questions. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. There is no charge for follow-up questions. Thank you.
