Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are the people local so you can contact them personally?
How much did you give each person?
What is their explanation for the delay?
Ok, then your recourse here is to file two separate small claims lawsuits against them based on breach of contract actions. If they are not in the same town as you, you will have to sue them where they are located so you can get personal jurisdiction over them and force them to come to court to defend the lawsuit.
The court clerks will have the summons and complaint forms you need to file the lawsuits and you don't need an attorney since the limit is $12,000 per case. Once filed, you will just have them served by the sheriff, the clerks will help with that, and then gather your evidence and come to court and tell your story to the judge.
Did you have any further questions that I can help with?
