Unfortunately, the time period to file a lien has long expired. Your recourse is to make a demand against the general contractor with which you contracted, and if they resist paying, you will have to file a lawsuit against them.

You might also investigate whether a payment bond exists for the Project. You could contact the Project architect or owner. You may be out of time to make a bond claim, but its worth taking a look.

Good luck to you, and contact me with any questions.
