Last year I was having a discussion with a leftist about "sharing the wealth" which he supports and I disagree with. So I made him an offer to put his money where his mouth is and he agreed to share his wealth with me by paying me the difference between what I earn (less than him) and what he earns. He also agreed to make it legally binding. I had a legal document drawn, the guy now will not even acknowledge that the agreement was made. I made screen shots of the conversation so he can't deny that the agreement was made.
Sorry to have a valid contract there must be consideration. Meaning, something of value must exchange hands or at least you must agree to have it change hands. Otherwise, it's a "gift," for which the law does not provide a remedy in the event of a breach. By any chance were there adult beverages consumed during the initial agreement?
I am not your attorney unless you and I have signed a retainer agreement. What I am saying is not legal advice. Do not act on this information without engaging my services, this is for consideration only.
The Courts are open to everyone, and nothing would prevent you from filing a lawsuit if you chose to do so. But be cognizant of the consequences. If you lose, you could be found responsible for paying the legal fees of your opponent. Do I think much of your chance of success with this strategy? I would't gamble on it. Hope this perspective helps!
