Sorry I don't understand Robson?

If you mean you are doing some static pages and you want this on one then yeah it's fine , as long as I get the credit

lol, nah, I don't mind, it's great to teach people how to do things right, right from the start.

as long as I get the credit
...and you put the necessary legal disclaimers on the site

Using this contract is fine, and it's great that it's being shared - but if you are serious about freelancing, you really should go and talk to a lawyer and either get this contract checked out (laws vary state by state/country by country, and so a contract valid on one state/country might not be in the next) or get them to write one for you. It's much cheaper to get the contract sorted out now if there's something wrong with it, then face a legal battle in the future over the validity of your contract if something goes badly wrong.

Too true tickedon, that's why I wrote this in conjunction with my free contract offer:

Thankyou for this Julian. I am quite confident in my skills as a programmer but one area that needs alot of attention is my lack of knowledge in business, legalities and contracts. This article should help me alot.

Do you get a lawyer to check over every single contract you make or did you just visit a lawyer initially to figure out what content should be in each of your contracts?

You're welcome Travis.

I got my lawyer to go over my contracts after I had drafted them up. I only have a contract for web development and graphic design, they are both very similar except the graphics one doesn't contain web elements. The lawyer just checked the legality of my clauses and the pertinent New Zealand law.

It cost around $200 NZ ($140'ish US)
