Hello, my name is Greg.
I am not sure which state you are in but they have quite a bit of time in order to file a lien, suit for breach of contract, or arbitration.
Here is some CA pertinent information (although the basics would apply in most states).
Depending on the amount they may or may not decide to start proceedings for the money. It will cost them money as well to seek restitution so often they will weigh that against the amount that is owed.
Hope that helps.
If I told you Texas would that help
Sure does - CLICK HERE for some pertinent legal aspects related to Texas on the issue.
Be sure to rate my response when satisfied as that is the only way I receive credit for my help on your question. :)
Thank you, ***** ***** article does not indicate a time line for filing a lien not does it speak filing in small claims court.
In Texas they have up to 4 years to file a claim in either district or small claims court depending on the amount.
Let me know if you have any additional questions. Otherwise we only get paid if there is a positive rating.
