I live in Colorado.
Took a contract job from a company located in Georgia to Install a Digital Touchscreen for a Doctor's office out in Colorado. Approx 150 miles away from where i live.
It's been 30 days ago. The company now is telling me that they are can not pay me, because of the COVID-19 issue and they have financial difficulties. They can't even tell a date when they are going to be able to pay me.
I am afraid they are going to file for Bankruptcy and I'll loose my money.
I would like to file at small claims court to get paid for my services before they go out from business.
My question: Do I need to file in Georgia, where the company is located?
Do I need to file in Denver, where I live? ( I was told not here)
or Do I need to file at the county where I have completed the work?
Someone told me I will have to file at the county where the company who gave me the work is actually located, So that will be Georgia.
I have seen I can e-file, but do I have to appear in person at court? If yes, then can I request for reimbursement for the travel expenses?
May I reposes the TV and everything I have installed at the doctor's office and sell to cover my work?
