I'm sorry to hear you've gone unpaid! Depending on the work that was performed which led to this nonpayment, there may be any number of tools available to recover payment. For one, mechanics liens are available to many Ohio claimants to recover payments after improving property and going unpaid. You can learn more about that option here: Ohio Lien & Notice FAQs. If unpaid on a public works project, another tool might be more appropriate - a bond claim. You can learn more about that option here: Ohio Public Project FAQs. Further, depending on the amount of the dispute, Ohio small claims court could be an option. And lastly, litigating the matter might be a last resort, but it could still be effective. Of course, avoiding litigation is usually very preferable. As a final note - leveraging any of these potential actions could go a long way toward compelling payment. Meaning, the mere threat of making a lien claim (like a Notice of Intent to Lien), a bond claim, or taking legal action might help to force payment without actually having to move forward with a formal claim.
