My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

You would only be able to place a lien against the company if you got a judgment against them. However, a lien wouldn't necessarily prevent the company from getting permits. The recourse here is to file suit against the company and get a judge to order them to pay you. The local Small Claims Court should have forms that you can use.

Good luck.

what if i'm owed 20,000
Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 5 years ago.
In that case, you would file in the Superior Court. Unfortunately, there aren't any court-created forms available online. If you have a written contract, you may want to check it to see if there is a clause that allows you to hold him responsible for your attorneys fees.

If not, here is one example of what a Complaint might look like. They're very fact-specific, though, so you have to take the basic format and then fill in your own facts.
