Outsourcing Contract Templates

Outsourcing contract templates – Can the free legal documents offered on the Internet be a replacement for consulting with a lawyer?

In some instances, most definitely.

To give a simple example: The law in your state may require a written contract for the sale of goods over a certain value. Or for that matter, you might choose to grant your parent a power of attorney to sell something on your behalf whilst away on vacation. It does not need specialized legal knowledge to compile a bill of sale for a motorcycle, automobile or other goods or to draw a limited power of attorney.

Similarly, a young person without a lot of assets might want to draft a final will and testament or a living will. For many young people a standard legal template can be used to make their files and the forms can be downloaded free from the Internet, without incurring legal costs. Needless to say, it’ll be a different case for a billionaire with various assets and a complicated will where consultation with a legal and/or financial expert is priceless.

Many parents recognize the need for a medical consent form for a babysitter in case of a medical emergency. Or they may need a more comprehensive temporary guardianship form if their child will be staying with a family member or trusted friend. These sample forms are freely available online.

Free legal documents are particularly valuable when they are also accompanied by legal guidelines on how best to complete them.

Although the law recognizes oral agreements, it always makes sense to get it in writing to avoid arguments over what exactly was agreed upon. Applying sample legal documents to compile your own contracts is no different to lawyers using their existing templates for standard agreements.

Of course there are several instances where you must consult with an attorney. Again, you can use the free legal files and free legal information available on the Internet to do your preparation ahead and so reduce the consulting time – and hours charged.
