  1. You can sue for breach of written contract. Perhaps the threat of doing so will get cooperation. Send a demand letter first, by certified mail or fed-Ex toprove receipt, and give a short deadline to honor the agreement. Quote the contract's language that's not being honored. If the other party doesn't honor the agreement, sue in Small Claims court. Your rights and remedies depend on what's in that contract, so you may want to hire a lawyer to review it.
