Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today.
Give me just a couple of minutes for research.
Yes, the claim would still be valid as California has a 4 year statute of limitations for breach of contract cases. That is assuming it is a written contract to perform the services. An oral contract has a 2 year statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for oral contracts are set forth in Section 339 of California's Code of Civil Procedure while Section 337 covers the written contracts.
If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a 5 Star Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work. Of course, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions in this thread. I want to be sure all of your questions are answered.
If you received an email regarding a phone call for an extra price that comes directly from the website and not from me. I don't take part in the telephone program and only work through this format and in your case this format should be sufficient.
If you need more time to find the paperwork then you should file for a Motion for Continuance.
You can file a Motion for Continuance up until the trial starts.
I don't know what kind of contract you had. All I can tell you is the statute of limitations is 4 years for a written contract and 2 years for an oral contract.
You mentioned earlier there was no contract. If there was no written contract then it must be an oral contract and the statute of limitations is 2 years.
It doesn't sound like a contract. She will have to present that to the judge and he will make the decision. But generally would need to be written and signed by both parties ahead of time.
I am about to go offline for the evening. I will be back online tomorrow so if you have any follow up questions please ask them in this thread and I will answer them as soon as I see them. If you haven't issued a Positive Rating yet I would encourage you to do so now. Issuing a Positive Rating will prevent the question from timing out and closing and will lock it open so it can be accessed and the Q and A can continue at any time from this evening or even a year or more from now.
