I was hired by an out of state company as an independent contractor to do home services for a special needs client. The contract States that no employee/employer relationship is created and neither party is authorized to bind the other in any way. In another part they require a 6 month commitment or they can not pay you for services you've already did and they can take legal action against you. Upon hiring I was given misinformation about the client and services needed and support from a local person. How much notice do I need to give and do they have the right to take legal action against me for breaking the six month clause.
thank you

No notice is required. There is a breach and misrepresentation. No action can be taken and st most you may get a nasty letter or call which you may ignore o reject on ground of the breach. You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way. Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding "yes" or "acceptable"

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
