Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
Is there any other information that you need?
Can you be a little more specific in your question?
"Do we have recourse" is one of those general ones that when we answer the customer invariably replies with "I already knew that".
Can we sue the company to get the money they owe my husband?
Yes, you can sue the company and possibly the owners of the company.
If the company has no assets but the owners do, would it be better to sue them?
You will probably want to move quickly so that you can "tie up" any money they may have coming in before they shut down and take it all or tie it up in bankruptcy.
You have to sue the company as well. If it is a corporation it will provide them some measure of protection from individual lawsuits. The amount of protection depends on hwo they handled the company.
Ok, the company is located in Colorado Springs and Denver, CO
Do we find a lawyer there?
That would make the most sense.
You may be able to sue them elsewhere but you can definitely sue them where they are located.
Ok, thank you for your help. I will get started on this.
You're very welcome. Anything else I can assist with?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX my questions.
Best wishes to you on this. Please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating so I get credit for my work.
