Yesterday I asked a question about how to go about trying to get money even though we did not file on the bonding company in time. Thank you for answering.. Now we did file notices on time and we should still be able to claim on the bond even though we did not file in time. So how would we got about doing this? Would we need to get a lawyer to send a letter to the surety company to enforce the claim? We are in Texas and this is a public job on a school. We were hired as the subcontractor.
