Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
A "release" operates after a dispute between persons arises. A "waiver" is used before and to avoid a later dispute. So, the document that you have, regardless of its language, is incorrect for your purposes.
If you are interested in having a document professionally drafted to protect your interests, then we can take this matter offline. Note that bona fide legal services, such as contract drafting, is unlawful if performed in this forum. Also, I am prohibited by website policy from negotiating price or terms of offline services as part of any forum correspondence.
The only means by which you can get what you're seeking here, is via a premium services offer -- which I will send, and which you may accept or decline at your sole discretion.
I look forward to providing further assistance. Thanks for using Justanswer!
