A General Release is often used when one person is broadly giving up all known and unknown claims against another party. This document can cover broad claims that are filed in the most common scenarios.
These templates are designed to be used nationwide in the US as the legal system is very similar across the country. However, they haven’t been reviewed by attorneys in all 50 states. You’re better off using one of our contract templates, written by an attorney, than no contract at all, even if your state has some unique laws.
Be sure to bring the contract template to a local attorney licensed in your state for review. A review of a pre-drafted contract for compliance with local law costs much less than paying an attorney for a custom contract from scratch (about 25% as much).
Although Canada, the UK, and Australia have similar legal systems to the US, the contract templates have not been reviewed by any attorneys licensed in those countries.
