What would be the governing law for this contract? For example which State law would govern?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Lawyer: Attorney2, Attorney replied 18 days ago

Would you like a sample of a governing law clause?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 18 days ago
please.
Customer reply replied 18 days ago
I must include all 6 aspects of a contract in my business agreement? As in offer, acceptance, consideration, mutuality of obligation, competency and capacity, and writing requirement?
Lawyer: Attorney2, Attorney replied 18 days ago

Correct. I can provide a sample. Capacity becomes an issue with a minor or when someone is not competent to sign a contract.

Consideration generally set out on the first page of a contract:

"NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants set forth herein and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto covenant and agree as follows:" http://www.adamsdrafting.com/good-and-valuable-consideration/

if I were simply creating a contract whose purpose was to simply fulfill all of the legal requirements in order for the entire agreement to be legally binding for the purpose of financial asset investment security where could I find an appropriate sample or template?

"So if I were simply creating a contract whose purpose was to simply fulfill all of the legal requirements in order for the entire agreement to be legally binding for the purpose of financial asset investment security where could I find an appropriate sample or template?"

US Legal Forms and LegalZoom have very good templates.

I'm currently drafting my own writing. How do I differentiate between offer and consideration?
Lawyer: Attorney2, Attorney replied 18 days ago

Consideration is the required to have a contract, both parties are making mutual promises. An offer is not a mutual promise.

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Lawyer: Attorney2, Attorney replied 18 days ago

An offer is a proposal.

I suppose I am looking for contracting and partnership templates. The main goal of the legal formation is to guarantee a refund if I am not able to complete the terms and make the agreement legally binding.
Customer reply replied 18 days ago
Can you describe what is wrong with the wording I have written?
Lawyer: Attorney2, Attorney replied 18 days ago

I think there may be a misunderstanding of the terms of service for this site.

You are asking me to go through each line of your contract and provide legally binding wording. I can give you refund language. You want to use a template that comes as close to what you are trying to achieve.

Give me a moment to provide the terms of service. Thank you for your patience.
