I need to know the legal steps required for a dating site.
I have been told I may have to pay up to $5000 in legal fees alone.
I would like to know what are all the requirements for the site to be worry free and details of how much each step may be or overall price.
I do not want to pay someone $5000 if it really only cost $1000.
So what should I do to start?
do I need to pay a lawyer $5000 just to copy and paste the site's user agreement?
The site will not generate anymony the first few months but there may be site members while we still have zero money.
so you mean as long as the site has no major cash in the bank or not worth more than we are willing to lose we should not worry about the lawyer?
do we just customize an existing disclosure until we start making money in the site?
