There ya have your answer. Now hire a REAL contractor with a license and insurance to fix the problem after the sheetrock is taken out and AFTER a licensed electricians takes out the wires .

Then the REAL contractor can put the studs in and an electrician can drill holes in the studs to put the wires back in.

Does this so called contractor have a license and insurance ?

im with joe caption on this one.. if its no longer a bearing wall.what should have been done is a sil plate put on top of the cut off studs. then the purple studs could be nailed down to that and then the top plate

by lapping them with only a 6" splice the joint can pivot.. theres no strength there
