We are contracted with a door manufacture under a GC on a Navy installation, and our contract is with a subcontractor of the GC, and in our contract we have standby and delay times and have over $70k in change orders for being delayed and put on standby numerous times, and the company we are contracted with is stating they don't have to pay us unless the Navy pays them, even though they agreed to our terms for the standby time were disclosed and greed out the gate and we are NOT pay hne paid, our contract is NET 30. We do have a copy of his bond on this job. Is he still liable even if the Navy or the GC don't pay him? Looking for a local attorney to have for these questions too. ...Read More
We are a mat'l supplier in Ca., a prelien is in place for a large job. The job is located on a US Air force base. The miller act, federal payment bond is in the general contractor's name. Is this still effective for our customer?
I did some work at a Naval yard for a first tier sub contractor. As the work progressed the sub contractor said that I was working for the General contractor and to get my contract from them. The General said that the change orders would be coming in and the contract would be worked out. After three months we finished our work without a contract from either party. Both contractor and sub contractor refused to pay for or furnish a contract for the work that was completed satisfactory. We filed a lien in 2018 and supplied all the data to the GC. The GC, sub contractor or bonding company did not pay us any of the $69,000.00 owed. Because of not having a contract my attorney said I had no case. Now it looks like the statute of limitation has run out. Do I have any options left? ...Read More
We were a subcontractor on a federal project, our client (the general contractor) hadn't paid us our final payment in now over 120 days. We just received a partial payment from them as well as a "deductive MOD" to our contract in which the deductions they are stating are not plausible. How do we proceed in getting paid? Should we file a miller act on payment bond or what legal options do we have? Thanks...Read More

we are a small electrical company doing work for a General contractor working on a Federal job at Offutt air force base.
We are about 75% done with the job but are having trouble getting paid for the last couple pay apps we’ve sent in.
We are waiting for 1/2 of Feb, all of March and now we’ve billed for April.
The General contractor keeps making excuses and we have paid out for labor and materials out of pocket.
The General contractor does not have a bond on this job but the Main contractor Dyncorp out of Texas does have a bond and they are the ones that pay the general we are working with....Read More

I am new here and I see that in the past they didn't send notice to bonding company. I'm thinking they should know as well that we are a contractor potentially requesting their assistance. Am I correct?...Read More
I'm a construction contractor and I have a customer that owed me $49,000 for work performed on a project. My customer received an email from a scammer pretending to be a representative of my company and asked the customer to ACH the payment to a fraudulent bank account. My customer ACH'd the payment to the fraudster. Does the customer still have to pay me? A few more related bullet points:
• A conditional waiver was signed by one of my employees related to the payment
• We never received the payment
• My AR employee didn't follow up on payment status until 4 months later. That's when the fraud was discovered. ...Read More
