Thank you for the additional information. If he was in charge of filing the license with the State of Florida and failed to do so, pursuant to the contract
, there would be a breach. As such, you would have a legal right to sue for damages and the cost to correct their error. In this case, you would likely have to obtain a new license from the clerk, so that it could be properly filed, assuming that the one you gave him can not be found nor if he is willing to even respond to your calls, emails and texts. In an ideal situation, he would respond and resolve this but if he is unwilling to do so at this time, you can make one more effort, to contact him in writing, via certified mail and explain that if he does not file the license as promised in the contract, you will be forced to sue for damages. There is no reason that this should not and can not be done but a potential lawsuit, may force him to act. If he does not, then you could try and sue for damages or take it upon yourself to obtain a new license, advising the clerk/state that this was lost by the minister and you need to have it filed, so it is of record.
