Sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately, this forum is typically reserved for general legal construction questions. Any questions regarding specific orders should be directed to Customer Support or an Account Manager. But, let's see if we can help clarify some of the issues you may be having. Stop Notices in California are a great way to freeze funds in order to get paid what you've earned. However, once the notice is served, the story doesn't end there. If the stop pay notice doesn't result in payment, a lawsuit must be initiated. According to §8550 of the CA Civil Code, an action to enforce a stop notice must be initiated anytime after 10 days of the notice date, but no later than 90 days after the expiration of the stop pay notice deadline. Meaning 180 days from completion of the work, or 120 days if a Notice of Completion was filed. If an enforcement action isn't initiated during this time period, the notice ceases to be effective and the funds will be released. In addition to this, there are also steps a direct contractor can take to release the stop pay notice. This can be achieved by either posting a release bond, or challenging the validity of the notice through summary proceedings. Either way, the claimant will be notified when this occurs.
