I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Once an Oklahoma mechanics lien is filed, the lien claimant must file a lien enforcement action within 1 year of the lien filing - otherwise, their mechanics lien will expire. Further, it's worth noting that a contractor must first file their lien within 4 months from their last furnishing of labor and/or materials. If a contractor misses that deadline, they won't be able to file a lien in the first place. You can learn more about the Oklahoma lien and notice rules here. Finally, these two resources may be of use: I Just Received a Notice of Intent to Lien – What Should I Do Now? and A Mechanics Lien Was Filed on My Property – What Do I Do Now?
