Please note, my answers to questions do NOT create an attorney/client relationship. Only after a written agreement is entered into between the parties is an attorney/client relationship created. Additionally, the responses posted here are done so on limited information and should not be fully relied upon without an in person consultation where the entire case is reviewed and discussed in detail.
Your domestic situation has nothing to do with your right to be paid. You employer cannot use this excuse to avoid paying you earned wages.
This answer is not fact specific and would require further investigation. A lawyer/client relationship has not been created by giving this very general answer, and Grynkewich Law Offices assumes no responsibility for its contents 1) based on the lack of specific information in the question and 2) based on the lack of a formal written retention agreement.
