    Thanks - I was trying to establish the actual schedule versus the norm. For example some agencies have "paid when paid" in their conditions. If that's in their contract with you, you've got a problem. If that's not in your conditions, start of with a nice, sympathetic email.

    "While I appreciate your situation, hopefully you can understand that I am now out of contract and therefore have no other source of income. As such, I cannot accept a delay on the payment of my outstanding invoice(s) and look forward to you remedying the situation as soon as possible. If you cannot pay me by the end of the week I will unfortunately have to chase the payment more formally."

    Then have a read through this article about the Dunning Letter.
