what can I include in my mechanics lien against a radio tower that I performed 3 weeks of work on.
I was let go from my company while working in Alabama, 14 hours from my home in Ohio. The very small radio tower company I work for did not furnish any money for fuel, my personal vehicle(which I drove), or funds for food, etc. Prior to leaving Ohio, I was supposed to receive $200.00 per diem, which would cover food and drink. I was let go from the company on 1/2/19 and told to return to Ohio on no money. I am still on the town where the job site is because I intend on filing a mechanics lien for unpaid balance, what they owe me for the 3 weeks of work prior to returning this time. I have all the necessary documentation to validate that I worked, what was performed and also the times of which this was completed. I would like to include the cost of my hotel to stay in Alabama so I can file the Lien Monday morning, 1/6/19. I am sending the intent to Lien document to the tower owner today and have left numerous messages at his radio station informing him of the situation. I have not been paid by my company in over a month, went christmas with no money and I have a 5 year old daughter. Please let me know if you have any insight. I am trying to include the cost for my working, my hotel, my per diem ($200) and the cost of fuel I used to get down here and will use to return home. I have all receipts for fuel, food, hotel, etc.
