    OT: Client does not want to pay after 8 months!

    Hi, I am a programmer who did some work on an existing clients
    website.

    Anyway, after eight months of using the changes I made (and not
    hearing back from them other then constantly being put off) I have
    asked to be paid.. they have always said the $$ is coming...

    Suddenly they are not going to pay becuause there are bugs....

    What should I do?? Legal options??
    Thanks
    Markus

    What does your contract with them say? More importantly, what does your
    solicitor say?

    I doubt there are many trained lawyers reading this group. I wouldn't
    ask a lawyer to solve a programming question - it's even more dangerous
    to ask programmers to solve a law question
