Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your contractual law question. I'm attorney Bill assisting you with your request posted earlier.

If you have a dispute with this contract and are refusing payment or demanding payment , this can be settled in the small claims court for amounts up to $5,000 Or otherwise in the general civil court.

I see you added more comments; if you made a payment under the understanding that the payment was in full of an underlying obligation and debt then the company could not later come after you for more payments.

If the payment was never expressed as in full then this would be a small claims matter in relation to these additional charges.

If you need further information please follow up with me.

In return by taking by the time to rate positively today I get a credit for my time in assisting you.

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or accept.

FIVE STARS or your rating is much appreciated in this regard.

Thanks

Attorney Bill
