Just so you know I wasn't giving you a bad time. More so thinking out loud after reading the information.
One point that was mentioned is that in hiring a company that lets say charges $40 an hour, that a judge would consider that the company had overhead costs. So the judge may consider that even though the company charges $40 they may only pay their people $12.
I also feel frustrated that often times when you hire someone that poor work is done. So frustrated that it be easier to do yourself. Bottom line until you find your handyman and cleaning person you can trust we have to supervise.
