I need feedback on this contract.
I’d appreciate some feedback on my work. I am not so well-versed in legal english.
I think you will find people hesitant to help you because we cannot give legal advice, even in the form of advising you on your wording.

To suggest something is properly written in "legal English" is not something anyone but a lawyer should do - and even then, it probably wouldn't be without some sort of an agreement between you.

It's not that we don't want to be helpful.

Dear Alexandremelo,

Grammar Geek is correct and she has offered you very sound advice.

Only an English-speaking lawyer should write a contract seeking to bind two (or more) parties into an agreement. It's a question of liability. If you are an attorney, may I suggest that you write the contract in your native language, then seek the services of a professional, court-approved translator. All countries have professional jurist associations that can assist you in finding qualified translators.

Regards,

John

Not only that, but both parties would need to understand perfectly what was being said, otherwise the contract would likely be thrown out if you ever went to court. The terms would need to be made clear in the language(s) of all parties involved.

In other words, if you have to ask here, it's not such a good idea anyways Emotion: smile
