I am in France working and had a building contract with a private customer. They failed to make payments on time, changed our agreement without my consent and eventually fired me before I could finish the work after more arguments over money. Now they are trying to sue me over unfinished work, stress and concocted facts. I am only earning 20k per year and they are trying to sue for 15K. I dont know what to do. Can you help?
System of Law: EU
I just received a subpoena.
Hi Sir, I am an spanish attorney, as you got a contract with they an they are broking it, my advice its to contact a local solicitor there who demand them
All contracts have to be respected by parts and they can not broke it by themselves without paying you a indemnization
The local solicitor will look for an arregement first uot of court and finally in court
The prices of the solicitors are free so look for differents budgets
I will be here if you need more help
