On our account, you can find the files. They filed a motion of objection based on technical items like their name is different or we did not specify if we were a contractor or sub, we did not attach the contract although it was attached. How does one go about dealing with the next steps on this?

That's a great question. First, I should mention that we are unable to conduct a legal review of a challenge or opposition to a lien claim - and we're unable to provide legal advice on how to proceed in any specific situation. That being said, it's worth noting that an owner's first response to a lien claim is often to argue that the claim is invalid for any number of reasons - regardless of whether there's actually a flaw in a filed lien claim or not. zlien discusses that in this article: My Lien Was Challenged — What Do I Do? But, if push comes to shove and legal action is necessary (or if it appears that a legal dispute may be on the horizon), many claimants find that consulting a local construction or real estate attorney can help to determine the veracity of any challenges to a filed lien claim.
