October 2020 we filed a Stop Payment Notice. The value has increased. Do we file new claim for total?

California

We are a sub sub contractor for a job. We filed a Stop Payment Notice delay claim in Oct 2020. Since then we have additional delay claim costs plus we have an additional claim regarding unfunded change orders. Do we file two new claims or is there a better method to handle? The public entity, direct contractor, surety, etc. are the same.

If it is not too late you could possibly file and serve an amended stop notice claim or a payment bond claim. Is the project completed? If so, when? Note that with both stop notice and payment bond claims you have to file suit within a short period of time or they expire and become invalid!!!

George,

Thanks for the response. A couple follow up questions:

1) Within what timeframe from the original stop notice would an amended claim need to be filed? 

2) Could we feasibly file a new claim for the entire amount and reference it as an ammended version?

3) Within what timeframe from the stop notice would we need to file a lawsuit?

I gather from comments from Levelset and your signature block, your law firm handles these types of matters?  

Thank you

Bill Daggs
